RCMP are asking for the public's help in finding a man they claim is armed and dangerous and wanted in connection to a gang-related shooting on a Manitoba reserve in early April.
Police said in the early morning of Apr. 4, shots were fired at an apartment block on the Opaskwayak Cree Nation reserve near The Pas, Man.
Witnesses told police that two men walked into a suite uninvited and fired several shots at another man who escaped without injury, according to Const. Josh Dubois.
While a 21-year-old man has been arrested and charged with attempted murder, police said 23-year-old Franklin Clifford Cook is at large and is a suspect in the shooting.
A Canada-wide warrant for his arrest has been issued and he faces the same charge, police said.
Police said Cook is considered an armed and dangerous member of the Indian Posse street gang.
Cook may be living in Saskatoon, police said.
They are asking that anyone who knows Cook's whereabouts to call police, but not approach him. He's described as being five feet four inches tall and weighing about 180 pounds. Anyone with information about Cook is asked to call police at 204-627-6200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
The Pas is located about 700 kilometres north of Winnipeg.
