The suspect fled the scene before officers arrived, but police have identified him: Shane McCall, a Hispanic male, driving a dark blue four-door vehicle believed to be a Hyundai Accent with a sticker in the rear window that reads “DB Auto.”

Police said he currently has two warrants for his arrest and should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone who sees his vehicle is urged not to approach it and to call 911.
