SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Sioux Falls police say they’re looking for a 17-year-old boy believed to be involved in the fatal shooting of another teenager during a drug deal.

The boy and a friend were meeting the victim, Ephraim Shulue, and another person to sell marijuana last Wednesday night, according to police.

Police Lt. Terry Matia says a disagreement took place in what turned into a robbery and gunfire erupted in a parking lot. Police say at least three guns were involved in the shootout - Shulue’s, one that belongs to his friend and a third fired by the suspect.

Officials said Shulue’s was struck by gunfire as he tried to flee the scene, KELO-TV reported.

Investigators say they’re not getting much cooperation from sources and possible witnesses.
