Sources told CBS 6 crime insider Jon Burkett the shooting may be the result of a drug deal, but again police have not confirmed that information.

He has black hair and brown eyes.

"He is considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached," a Richmond Police spokesman said. "Anyone who sees him is asked to call police immediately."
