SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — Police have identified a suspect in the weekend shooting of a man at an apartment complex in Iowa.

The Sioux City Police Department said in a news release Friday that they have a warrant for the arrest of Roderick D. Banks, 36, of Sioux City on a charge of first-degree murder, the Sioux City Journal reported.

Banks is wanted in Sunday's shooting of Solomon Blackbird at Park Place Apartments near Grandview Park.

Officers found Blackbird suffering from a gunshot wound, and rendered medical aid until an ambulance took him to a hospital, police said. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Police said the shooting may have been motivated by a drug deal between the two men.
