He has a teardrop tattoo on his cheek, a bald head, and other tattoos on his forehead and neck. He was last seen driving a 2001 red Honda Civic with a black hood with a skull on it.

Deputies say they found the victim, a 23-year-old man from Canyonville, sitting in his car, which had three bullet holes in it. The victim had an injury to his face. He was not named.
