Authorities are one step closer to finding a suspect wanted in connection with a fatal shooting outside a local strip club.

The U.S. District Court in Allentown issued a federal arrest warrant Tuesday for Ulysses Rodriguez "for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution."

Rodriguez is a suspect in the shooting death of Tyree Wimberly, 21, outside Scoobies Gentlemen's Club in Allentown on Jan. 26.

The warrant allows officers to look for Rodriguez, 20, also known as 'Slime,' in New York City, where he's thought to have fled.
