Philadelphia police are trying to identify a suspect in last week's fatal shooting outside a peace concert at the Dell Music Center.

Police have released a photo of a man they say is wanted for questioning in the killing of 20-year-old Alexis Guevara.

Guevara was shot shortly after 8:30 p.m. Wednesday in a parking lot outside the music center, located near 33rd and Huntingdon streets in Fairmount Park.

He suffered gunshot wounds to his abdomen and thigh, and was taken to Temple University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead just after 2:15 a.m. Thursday.
