COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Columbus police need your help finding a dangerous suspect who shot a man in broad daylight. Deandre Reshade Harris, 23, has been on the run for exactly 11 days and police want him behind bars.

Sergeant Donald Bush with the Columbus Police Department says Harris is armed and dangerous. He shot a man on Marathon Drive around 1:30 p.m. on March 17. After robbing the victim of $35, Harris shot the victim in the arm and ran away.

"The suspect probably [had] seen the victim with money or thought he had some money and that's when the robbery occurred," said Sergeant Bush.

Deandre Harris is 6-feet-tall and weighs 182 pounds and has a 2-inch scar on his right upper arm.

"At this time we think he [has not] left the area, but the unfortunate part about it is he may strike again. This time he may shoot the person somewhere else or cause serious bodily injury or death."

According to Sgt. Bush, Harris has warrants for aggravated assault, armed robbery, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

If you know of whereabouts of Deandre Harris you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 706-653-3188.

If your information leads to an arrest, you can receive a reward of up to $1,000 and your information for contact will remain anonymous.
