Have you seen this cheesy car that was used during a shooting? [IMAGE]

St. Louis Park police are asking for the public's help in trying to find the man responsible for a burglary and shooting that took place last week.

For the case, which left a St. Louis Park homeowner with a gunshot wound, cops have a physical description of the man responsible.

But, as with many such physical descriptions, the list of details about the man's appearance could apply to a lot of people in the Twin Cities area.

So, to help find the burglar/shooter, cops have released an artist's rendering of the car the suspect was driving; they're hoping that only a few people around here are cheesy enough to line the side of their car with blue flames.

The shooting took place at around 2 in the afternoon on October 27, when Eric Zahniser, 58, returned to his home on the 9300 block of Cedar Lake Road. Zahniser interrupted an apparent burglary of the home, and was shot by the surprised burglar, who then fled, KSTP reports.

Zahniser was taken to HCMC, and is expected to recover from his injuries.

The man involved in the shooting is described as a black man in his 20s, standing about 5-foot-8 and and with a slender build, who was wearing a grey sweatshirt at the time of the crime.

See, that could apply to a lot of people. But how many people drive a car that looks like this?

The car, thought to be a '90s-era Pontiac Grand Am or something that looks like it, is marked-up with blue flames on the sides and hood.

St. Louis Park Police are offering $5,000 for information that leads to the arrest of the shooter. Anyone who's seen this car, driven by a man who matches the above description, should contact the police department at 952-924-2618.
