    Hoodie is a pull-over rather than a zip-up. Lettering obviously misleading. Handgun appears to be a Judge Taurus revolver. Unusual to use in this sort of crime. Appears to be male. Note the nose. Tip of nose is slightly up-turned exhibiting nostrils rather than turned down, hiding them. This may be best clue unless other photos can reveal more. The exit in direction of Buffalo may be true but could be deceptive and suspect left 164 somewhere in between, to throw off pursuers. Check any turn off points between Donie and Buffalo and look for maybe plastic bag with clothing, etc., discarded.
