Police have named a suspect in the killing of boxing legend Joe Frazier's step-grandson.
A warrant was issued today for Rodney Evans, 32, who stands about 6-foot-5, weighs about 300 pounds, and should be considered armed and dangerous, police said.
At about 1:18 a.m. on Sunday, May 31, two men in a North Philadelphia bar "pulled out handguns and began firing at each other," according to Philadelphia police.
A third man, Peter Lyde Jr., 25, who was working at the bar, got shot in the chest and was pronounced dead about a half-hour later at Hahnemann University Hospital.
Lyde, of the 4000 block of Old York Road, was the son of Peter Lyde Sr., who is married to Frazier's daughter, Municipal Court Judge Jacqui Frazier-Lyde.
Frazier-Lyde had helped raise Lyde since he was a child, a family spokeswoman said.
The shooting took place at Pleasures on the Ridge, 2000 Ridge Ave.
Anyone with information regarding the offender is asked to contact the Homicide Unit Fugitive Squad at 215-686-3068 or 215-686-3084.
