Police have identified a suspect in the Wednesday shooting death of 27-year-old Darrell Terrell.

Adrian Lewis, 25, is suspected of shooting Terrell outside of Obama Market at 626 40th Ave. N. following a midday argument that started inside the market.

After the storeowner told the two to leave, they continued fighting outside where, witnesses told police, Lewis pulled a gun and shot Terrell.

Terrell died later at Vanderbilt Medical University Center. Lewis has three previous convictions for evading arrest, theft and domestic assault.

Police urge those with information on Lewis’ whereabouts to call Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.

How could this happen outside of a happy place like Obama Market?

This makes me so angry. One man is dead and another will spend years behind bars and will live off the tax payers probably for the rest of his life. I hope the shooter gets the death penalty and give us hard-working tax payers a break.

Also, why would someone name a market "Obama Market"? That is so silly and a disgrace to our president. I'm just disgusted.

NY1 - it's a fact that a death penaly conviction with all its appeals is many times more expensive for the state and taxpayers than the cost of life imprisonment.
Some states have done away with the death penalty for that very reason and others are considering it.
