Police say they are looking for Uzzi C. Caruthers of Kennett. Warrants for his arrest include first degree assault, armed criminal action, unlawful use of a weapon and felon in possession of a firearm.

On the morning of May 23, Capt. Tim Trowbridge said police officers were on Ninth Street near Jones Park when they saw six shots being fired by someone.

Police said one of the bullets struck a vehicle that was stopped on the intersection of Kennett Street and Ninth Street.

An officer standing in the same intersection said another bullet nearly hit him. Capt. Trowbridge said the driver of the car struck pointed at a white car and said the shooter was inside.

The white car then quickly left the scene and drove south on Main Street. Officers were able to catch up with the car at the intersection of Slicer and Fifth Streets.
