SEATTLE (AP) -- Police have identified a suspect and released an additional detail about a fatal shooting last Wednesday outside a south Seattle fast-food restaurant.

Police said Tuesday they're looking for 26-year-old Troy D. Sanders. They believe he shot 31-year-old Courtney Taylor following a disturbance that occurred during the filming of a video.

Spokeswoman Renee Witt had no other details about the video or possible motive in the shooting.

She says Sanders raps under the name John Taylor, but he is not related to the victim. Courtney Taylor also was known as a rapper. Witt couldn't say if rapping was an angle in the shooting.

The shooting was unusual in that police said a hostile crowd prevented emergency responders from reaching the victim for about five minutes.
