PHILADELPHIA - Authorities are searching for two additional suspects in connection to the deadly mass shooting on South Street that killed 3 and wounded nearly a dozen.
The Philadelphia Police Department shared photos of a third suspect on Tuesday night and updated the handout Wednesday night to include another suspect. Both suspects appear to be standing together in surveillance footage and wearing similar dark-colored hooded sweatshirts.
Law enforcement source confirmed to FOX 29 that the suspect on the right side of the police handout is an 18-year-old Delaware County resident. Sources say he is the one who fired a .40 caliber weapon that police believe may have killed 27-year-old Alexis Quinn.
The Philadelphia District Attorney's Office announced Wednesday that an arrest warrant for murder has been issued. Sources tell FOX 29 the warrant is for the 18-year-old suspect.
Both suspects, according to police, are considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information on the suspect should reach out to local authorities. There is a $20k reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction.
The manhunt for two more suspects comes shortly after the District Attorney's Office approved charges against two men already in custody.

The two suspects in custody, Quran Garner and Rashaan Vereen, face several charges related to the shooting that erupted when investigators say a fist fight between three men escalated to a shootout.
Authorities believe the deadly mass shooting happened when a fist fight between three men escalated into a shooting. The Philadelphia District Attorney's Office said that two of the combatants, Gregory Jackson and Micah Towns, were both licensed to carry.
Officials believe Jackson fired the first shot that critically wounded Towns, who returned fire and killed Jackson. The third man in the fracas, identified as a friend of Jackson's named Rashaan Vereen, was taken into custody Monday by U.S. Marshal's on several charges.
Amid the chaos, authorities said Quran Garner - believed to be a friend of Towns' - fired towards the brawl. According to investigators, Garner was armed with a ghost gun equipped with an extended magazine and pointed the weapon at approaching officers.
Police shot Garner in the hand which caused him to drop the gun and flee the scene, according to authorities. It's believed that he ran to the scene of an unrelated shooting blocks away where he told officers that he was shot on South Street.
Garner, 18, faces charges of aggravated assault, assault of a law enforcement officer and weapons charges. Vereen, 34, also faces several charges including attempted murder, aggravated assault, conspiracy, and aggravated assault.
In all, 14 people suffered gunshot wounds in the incident, and three people died. Officials have identified the other deceased victims as Kristopher Minners, 22, Alexis Quinn, 27. Both are believed to have been innocent bystanders, according to police.
