Sioux City police are on the lookout for a suspect in a fatal shooting.

Officials say 20-year-old Martin Castellanos is on the run. Police say Castellanos shot and killed 20-year-old Adrian Hernandez of Sioux City early Sunday morning.

An accomplice admits Hernandez’ body was taken to an area south of Sioux Falls after the murder, dumped in a ditch on a gravel road, and lit on fire. Twenty-two-year-old Ricardo Vital is facing charges of accessory after the fact in connection with the case.

Authorities think Castellanos may be driving a silver 2004 Audi with Iowa plate 892-YSD.
