The victim was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, but survived. 

Prosecutors have charged Gafa with Assault in the First Degree and issued a $300,000 warrant for his arrest. 

Detectives have information he is in the Seattle area, so they reached out to Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound for help to find him. They say he should be considered ‘armed and dangerous.’

"Shot somebody in the middle of the night. To take him into custody, we don't know what he's capable of with his contacts here, or if he has access to more firearms," said Ret. Sgt. Jim Fuda with Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound.

He’s 27 years old, 5'11" and weighs 180 pounds.
