Posted: Updated:

UPDATE/TOPPENISH, Wash. -- Toppenish Police have released the name of the suspect they believe was involved in a drive-by shooting Tuesday morning.

23-year-old Juan Lionel Rivas is wanted in connection with Tuesday's drive-by shooting, several arrests warrants and an assault with a knife on May 10th.

On Tuesday morning, police say Rivas fired several shots at a man and woman in a red passenger car. Then, Rivas fled the area to a home on the 500 block of N. Elm Street.

The victims of the drive-by shooting say they had been shot by the woman's estranged boyfriend. Detectives obtained a search warrant for the home they believed Rivas to be in.

Once police and the SWAT team entered, several people in the home were arrested for not cooperating with police. However, the suspect was not in the car.

Police continue to search for Rivas. If anyone sees Rivas, they should contact police immediately. Rivas is considered to be armed and dangerous.
