PHOENIX -- A suspected gang member accused of being involved in the 2009 fatal shooting of a Phoenix man is on the U.S. Marshals Service's list of the 15 most wanted fugitives.

The Marshals Service said Friday that 26-year-old Cameron Leezell Taylor is wanted by Phoenix police on suspicion of attempted murder, aggravated assault, endangerment, assisting a criminal street gang and a drive-by shooting.

Authorities say Taylor and two other alleged gang members are suspected of shooting at members of a rival gang in a south Phoenix neighborhood on March 23, 2009.

They say a stray bullet hit and killed 54-year-old Gilbert Leon, who was an innocent bystander who drove into the shootout.

The Marshals Service says it is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to Taylor's arrest.
