Police in Meriden have identified a man they said fired shots from a moving vehicle that seriously hurt an innocent bystander last month.

They said they hold an active felony arrest warrant for 23-year-old Deon Camp.

The warrant stems from an investigation into the shooting on May 2.

Police said it happened in front of 126 Willow St.

They said Camp fired at a man; however, he missed and struck a bystander.

The bystander suffered serious injuries.

Police said Camp will be charged with first-degree assault, reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a firearm, unlawful discharge of a firearm and carrying a pistol without a permit.

His bond will be set at $400,000.

Police said Camp is believed to be in the area and is asking for the public's help in finding him.

However, he is considered armed and dangerous.

Camp is also wanted for first-degree failure to appear, which also holds a $20,000 bond.

Anyone with information can contact the Meriden Police Department at 203-630-6201.
