Hampton, Va. - Three weeks after a deadly shooting, the suspect still hasn't been caught.

It was on March 11 when Marcus Major, 21, was shot and killed in a car on Brightwood Ave.

Police say they quickly identified Paris Small as the suspect but are having a hard time finding him.

So far, officers have not received any tips about where he is and they don't know if there are any areas he often frequents.

Small faces a number of charges including murder, attempted maiming and shooting into an occupied vehicle.

Police say they need to catch him for the public's safety and for the victim's family.

"When we capture this individual and bring him to justice, that's when we have closure [for] the family, that's what the families look for," said Det. Michael Snelgrow.

That's why they need the community to call with any tips about where he is or where he could be.

"We rely a lot on tips because that helps us solve the crimes and locate the people that we're looking for.  Paris Small is armed and dangerous, at this point, that's what we consider him, and we need to get him off the street," said Det. Snelgrow.
