INDEPENDENCE -- As of press time Tuesday, police were still searching for a Seattle man who allegedly opened fire on a man at the home of his ex-girlfriend on Sept. 14.
The incident occurred about 10 a.m. in the 1000 block of D Street, Sgt. Pete Roy said.
According to police, Andres Aguilar-Gonzalez, 30, drove to the residence of his ex-girlfriend, just as Dionicio Carrion-Cervantes of Independence had stepped out of the home to make a cell phone call.
Aguilar-Gonzales saw Carrion-Cervantes and fired two shots at him with a handgun from the open window of his red 1991 Toyota Celica.
As Carrion-Cervantes ran, the suspect fired a few more shots at the front of Maria Villa-Riveras's home before speeding away. Nobody was injured.
Police received a call from the victims about 10 minutes after the shooting, Roy said. A warrant for Carrion-Cervantes' arrest was immediately sent to other agencies in the Willamette Valley.
Police have also contacted Washington authorities, since it is believed that Aguilar-Gonzales was headed back home.
"We are still working the investigation and talking to his friends and relatives," Roy said.
Aguilar-Cervantes is about 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 180 pounds. He has short black hair and a goatee.
He has tattoos of a heart on his left forearm, an "A" on his right hand, an "X" on his left hand, a cross with a sun on his left shoulder and a fish on his right shoulder.
His car has Washington license plates with the number 625 PLT. Aguilar-Gonzalez is considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call the Independence Police Department at 503-838-1214.
