The New Orleans Police Department is searching for a man wanted for attempted murder in the New Orleans East area.

Officers say that Eddie Young, 56, fired several shots at a victim and pointed a gun at a second female victim on Wednesday.

Police say that Young was at his girlfriend's residence, located in the 6100 block of East Hermes, when a verbal altercation ensued.

The suspect grabbed a handgun from his vehicle and fired two rounds at a victim, police say. Police say that Young then pointed his gun at a second suspect and pulled the trigger. The victim tells authorities that the gun jammed and the suspect fled the scene.

Police say that Young fled the scene in a 1997 Buick Sentry, champagne in color, with Louisiana plates WFK974. The vehicle has an "I Luv Obama" bumper sticker on the rear driver side of the vehicle, police say.

Officers say that the suspect is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information on Young's whereabouts is asked to contact authorities.
