Police are looking for 32-year-old Ernest Ronald Fickling and they need your help.

Just after midnight on June 4, Fickling shot a 26-year-old man riding his bike on College Street.

Police say Fickling shot the victim out the window of a white Kia with Connecticut plates.

He fled the scene after the shooting.

Springfield Police Sergeant John Delaney says the victim jumped off his BMX bike and ran through the backyard to his uncle's house where he called 911. He was treated at Baystate Medical Center.

"He's still alive today but we are looking for the person who committed this crime," Sgt. Delaney said.

Fickling's last known address was 24 Oakwood Terrace.

He's wanted for assault with intent to murder and for discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a dwelling.

"Please do not approach this subject because he is considered armed and dangerous," Sgt. Delaney said.

If you know the whereabouts of Ernest Fickling or have any information about the June 4 shooting, call the Springfield Police Department's Detective Bureau (413) 787-6355, dial 911 or to remain anonymous, text "SOLVE" and your tip to CRIMES (274637).
