U.S. marshals are looking for a D.C. man accused of shooting a woman in front of their three children.
Police said 28-year-old Raynard Cook got into an argument with a woman in the 7200 block of Alden Place NE about 7:20 p.m. on Feb. 15.
Cook pulled out of a handgun and fired several times. The couple's children were nearby, police said.
The woman was struck several times. She remains in critical condition.
D.C. police issued a warrant for Cook on charges of aggravated assault with a gun. Marshals deputies are asking the public for information that can help bring in Cook before someone else gets hurt.
"The weapon used in the assault has not been recovered, therefore it's to be assumed Cook is still in possession -- making him armed and extremely dangerous," said Supervisory Inspector James Werking of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Fore.
Cook has an arrest history dating back to 2002 that involves burglaries, narcotics, and assault charges.
He is known to frequent the Northeast and Southeast areas of D.C., in particular the Deanwood neighborhood.
He is about 6-foot-3 and 175 pounds. He is also known as Reyvon Stone, Reynaud, Ray Ray, Ray Dog and Rizzy.
A reward is available for any information leading to the direct arrest of Cook. Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts is urged to call Detective Travis Barton or the U.S. Marshals Service at 30-489-1717 or 800-336-0102.
Since 2008, federal authorities have credited readers of The Washington Examiner for the capture of 40 fugitives, including murderers, kidnappers, child sex offenders, rapists and scam artists. At least eight captured fugitives were convicted killers or wanted on a homicide charge.
The Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, run by the U.S. Marshals Service, is composed of 30 federal, state and local agencies from Baltimore to Norfolk. The unit has captured more than 33,000 fugitives since its creation in 2004.
