Nineteen-year-old Florida rapper, Lil Dell, is wanted for his alleged connection to a Memorial Day murder.
According to ABC 3, the rapper—whose real name is Cordellious Dyess—was a part of a group of teenagers who fired more than 40 shots into a large crowd at a parking lot near the Platinum Night Club in Pensacola, Florida, intending to hit a rival gang member. A stray bullet struck Elizabeth Harris, who would later die at a nearby hospital.
Thursday Elizabeth’s mother and sister said this news was bittersweet.
“It’s not gonna solve anything,” said her mother, Tawanna Campbell. “I want my baby and I can’t get her back, you know?”
Elizabeth was shot in the parking lot near the Platinum Night Club on North Palafox Street after leaving a concert around 2 a.m. Memorial Day.
Police said she was not the intended target.
Elizabeth later died at the hospital.
Investigators said a group of gang members were after a rival gang member. They fired more than 40 shots into the large crowd.
“Even if they had not shot my daughter, what if they shot and killed the young man they were really looking for? This is [an] unnecessary crime,” said Campbell.
Three teens have been arrested in connection with the murder including 18-year-old Tequan Warren, 17-year-old Markeasia James, and 19-year-old Dante Walker.
Walker has been charged with accessory to murder.
Warren and James face a list of charges including first-degree murder, attempted murder, and aggravated assault.
Police are still looking for 19-year-old Cordellious Dyess, who faces the same charges.
Warren, James, and Dyess could face life in prison if they are convicted of their charges.
“It’s a lose-lose situation. These children have lost their lives, my daughter has lost her life and they’re gonna lose family. I’ve lost my family. It’s just too much,” said Campbell.
Harris’s younger sister, Vallie Harris, said she was shocked when she saw their mugshots.
“It’s sad because I grew up with these people. I went to school with them. I seen these people every day. Now when I think about it, I have to think these people did this to my sister,” said Vallie Harris.
Her loved ones said they are thankful for the police department’s work in bringing some justice to this daughter, sister, and friend.
