READING, Pa. -

An arrest warrant has been issued in the 2002 shooting death of a man outside a neighborhood bar.

Police said the warrant was issued for Eric DeBooth. He is currently in a state prison in Greene County, Pa. on unrelated weapons charges.

DeBooth, 27, is wanted in connection with the 2002 shooting death of Randall Minggia near the Whipping Post Pub in the 500 block of Mulberry Street in Reading.

Minggia was shot to death while sitting in the driver's seat of his car shortly after leaving the bar.

DeBooth has been charged with first and third degree murder and related offenses.

The arrest warrant came as a result of testimony in front of the Berks County District Attorney's first investigating grand jury.
