The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Department is trying to locate a man believed to be involved in a Superior Township shooting Tuesday.

Deputies were called to Clark Street near Devon Street at 8:30 p.m., where a 21-year-old Ypsilanti Township resident reported being shot at in the parking lot of the Superior Party Store by her ex-boyfriend Akeem Antoine Armstead.

Police said the victim reported Armstead, 24, approached the passenger side of her van and shot through the door. She was not struck. She said Armstead attempted to smash out the rear window of the van as she pulled out of the parking lot, and shot at the front of the van as she pulled forward.

The victim called 911 as Armstead started to follow her in his vehicle, according to police. He had fled the area by the time deputies made contact with the victim. No injuries were reported.

Anyone with information regarding the location of Armstead, who is wanted for aggravated assault and attempted murder, are asked to call 911 or the sheriff’s confidential tip line at 734-973-7711. Police said he is considered armed and dangerous.
