A drug deal gone bad killed one person outside of a Lehigh Valley Target store last summer — and now authorities have identified the suspects, LehighValleyLive reports.

Kevin Littles, 22, of Harrisburg is at large in the shooting that left 20-year-old Elijah Johnson dead and 23-year-old Jayzell Sanders hurt in the parking lot of the Lower Nazareth Commons shopping center on Aug. 8, 2021, the outlet says.

Jakiye Taylor, 18, of Harrisburg, was arrested on homicide charges Thursday, May 5. Anyone with information on Littles' whereabouts is urged to call 911.

Johnson, of Monroe County, was shot during an argument in the parking lot of Target in the Lower Nazareth Commons shopping center on Dryland Way around 2:15 p.m., Northampton County District Attorney Terence Houck previously said.

He was remembered as a passionate and skilled at football and had played throughout high school, according to a fundraiser for his funeral expenses.
