MILWAUKEE -- Police are asking for the public's help in finding a car connected to last month's homicide of a popular Milwaukee bartender.

The suspect in 22-year-old Dylan Steffen's homicide was driving a white, four-door Chevrolet Impala, police say (pictured above). All of the car's windows are tinted. The lower half of the front bumper is black and the front wheel is either dirty or the wheel cover is missing, according to a news release.

Steffens was shot and killed in what investigators are calling an armed robbery. His friend Zack DuBois says he and Steffens were walking on South 2nd Street, near Lapham Boulevard, when a man came up from behind and grabbed them.

"We had walked by him, but we didn't pay much attention because we were engrossed in conversation," DuBois said. "Then he came up behind us and tried to pull us into a parking lot and asked us to empty our pockets. We shoved him and sort of pulled away."

As they ran, the man pulled out a gun and fired. Dylan was hit by a bullet. The shooter took off. Zack called 911, and Dylan was rushed to Froedtert.

"His mother, brother and sister came to the hospital," DuBois said. "We stayed there the whole night. But he didn't make it. There was never a less deserving person for this to happen to."

Anyone with any information is asked to call Milwaukee Police at 414-935-7360.
