ALTUS, OK (KSWO) –The Altus Police Department is still looking for a man they say is wanted in connection to a drive-by shooting.

Police say the drive-by shooting happened around 1:45 p.m. on Jan. 27, 2016, on the 600 block of North Julian. Witnesses told police the suspect, 21-year-old Jervon Ikeem Carruthers, shot several times from a gray Pontiac car. A parked car was shot and investigators were able to recover bullet fragments from the trunk.

The case was submitted to the Jackson County District Attorney’s Office and a warrant was issued for Carruthers’ arrest for use of a vehicle in discharging a weapon. Carruthers also has outstanding warrants for a motion to revoke a suspended sentence and motion to accelerate a deferred sentence; both of those warrants are unrelated to the shooting.

Carruthers is 5’6”, weighs about 170 pounds and is considered armed and dangerous.

If you know where Carruthers is, call the Altus Police Department at 580-482-4121 or your local law enforcement. You can also call the Altus / Jackson County Crime Stoppers at 580-482-TIPS (8477). Tips to Crime Stoppers can be made anonymously and a $500 reward is being offered for information that leads to his arrest.
