VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — The Victorville Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance in locating a suspect who fired several rounds into an occupied vehicle.

Sheriff’s officials said the victims, a 36-year-old male, and 25-year-old female, were parked at the car wash when the suspect later identified as Dahani Chance Evans, approached their vehicle.
“The victims knew the suspect and had issues with him recently, prompting them to attempt to leave. As they began to drive, the suspect fired a gun several times at their vehicle. The victims continued to drive and met with deputies in the downtown area of Victorville,” stated sheriff’s officials.
