A Minnesota man is wanted by Illinois authorities in connection to a double murder that happened in an underground parking garage of a condominium Sunday night. 

According to Buffalo Grove Police Department, the double shooting happened around 8:15 p.m. at 150 Lake Boulevard, and 64-year-old Anatoliy Ermak, of Minnesota, has been identified as the suspected killer. 

Surveillance footage shows the victims driving into the parking garage. They are then approached by Ermak, who shoots them both at close range. Police identified the victims as Nataliya Ermak, 55, and her husband, Roman Frid, 69.

Police say the suspect is Nataliya Ermak's ex-husband, who is now wanted in connection to the homicides and "should be considered armed and dangerous." He may be driving a white Nissan Versa hatchback with Florida license plate KCFK75. 

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Ermak rented the vehicle several days ago in Minnesota, which is his last known address. WCCO reports that Ermak "once lived in Edina." 

Anyone with information on Ermak’s location should contact the Buffalo Grove Police Department at 847-459-2560 or file an anonymous tip at 847-662-2222.
