I am looking for a top latch, I am not sure of the proper name for it nor where to find it. It has a U shape where the strike plate goes in between. Please help

Let me know if this helpClose up are not needed, back up some so we can see the whole thing.
It is an emergency exit door...the latch needs to be replaced. Not a hard fix...I just need help locating the same latch since it's hard to find.That is probably considered a "fire escape" door.
As such I would not touch it. I would have it repaired by a qualified professional. There are times when the potential liability of DIY so greatly exceeds the potential benefit. This is one of them.
