MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

Moultrie Police are on the lookout for a suspected shooter with a long rap sheet. They're asking for help to find the man they say is armed and dangerous.  

Moultrie Police need your help finding 31-year-old Patrick Lee McCloud. They believe he shot a man in the face Saturday at 2:00 a.m. in the 300 block of 2nd Street Northwest.    

"When they arrived on scene he was bleeding profusely from his mouth region," said Inv. David Jones, Moultrie Police Department. "He was able to give a nickname of the individual who shot him."  

One neighbor says she heard several gunshots coming from the front porch of a house. Investigators say 36-year-old Michael Peeples was shot in the chin. Peeples told police the shooter goes by the nickname of Ra-Ra.  

"We were able to confirm through jail records and jail staff who Ra-Ra's identity is," said Jones.    

Investigators say McCloud has a lengthy criminal and violent past and they say he's dangerous.  

"Do not approach him, we have no reason to believe that he's not armed," said Jones.  

Police found several shell casings in the area from a 40 caliber gun they say was used in the shooting. McCloud is 5' 8 and investigators believe he's still in the area.  

"We know he's got some contacts in middle and North Georgia, but we don't believe that he's left the area yet," said Jones.  

Investigators took out warrants charging McCloud with aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during commission of a crime. Michael Peeples is in good condition at a Macon Hospital.     

If you have any information about Patrick McCloud you're asked to call Moultrie Police.
