Police in Batavia have identified the man wanted for a shooting at a drive-thru of a Steak 'n Shake, but he's not in custody.

Police said Terry Hunter, 27, is armed and dangerous and should not be approached.

Hunter is wanted in connection with the shooting of a 17-year-old boy at the drive thru of the restaurant at 1901 McKee Street Tuesday evening.
