    (NECN/AP) - Framingham police are looking for a person who was said to be wearing a Halloween-type mask when they shot and killed a man sitting in a car outside an apartment complex.

    Police responded to the Normandy Arms apartments just before 11 p.m. Wednesday.    
    There they found the victim suffering from a gunshot wound.
    The victim, Juan Lopez, 21, of Framingham, was transported to MetroWest Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
    A witness told investigators the shooter was wearing a white "Halloween-type mask" and a black sweater.
    Police believe that the suspect who shot the victim was wearing a white mask at the time of the shooting.  A mask matching the description was later recovered in Natick by the Natick Police.
