The ex-husband of a woman shot and killed leaving a New Year's party is considered armed and dangerous, and police say they believe his family is helping to conceal him.

Investigators say 48-year-old Jerry Hudson is a person of interest. They say he made several threats to his ex-wife, Melissa Bridgewater, who was 45 years old.

According to authorities, Bridgewater was leaving the Doubletree hotel in Oak Brook early Friday morning when a gunman approached her car in the hotel parking lot and shot her in the head execution style.

The woman had just begun dating someone else after recently divorcing Hudson.
