GAINESVILLE - Gainesville Police Monday afternoon named another suspect in what they called a drug-related robbery in a shooting death on West Avenue last month.

Investigators also released a photo of the suspect, Rodnie/Rodine Maurice Stokes, AKA Rebel, 27.

Police said they believe Stokes is likely in the metro Atlanta area, having ties to Norcross and Gwinnett County.

Cedric Huff, 41, died in the June 5 incident.

Police said Stokes has active warrants for felony murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Investigators said Stokes is aware police are looking for him, and he should be considered armed and dangerous.

42 year old Leshan Tremiele Tanner of Gainesville was arrested in the case last month, charged with felony murder.

According to the initial incident report in the case, the suspect vehicle was described as a small two-door white pickup truck.
