Sacramento police are asking the public’s help in identifying a man suspected of shooting a woman last month at a home in the North Sacramento area.

The shooting was reported about 3:57 p.m. Aug. 28 at a residence in the 2500 block of Erickson Street. Officers arrived and found a woman with gunshot wounds. She was transported to a hospital, where she is undergoing treatment and is expected to survive, according to a Police Department news release issued Tuesday.

SWAT officers and crisis negotiators tried to make contact with the suspected shooter at a home following the shooting, before determining that he was not there.

Through the investigation, detectives identified 29-year-old Randy Wallace as the suspect in the shooting, which is believed to have stemmed from an argument between Wallace and the victim. The two were in a prior relationship, the news release said.

Wallace, who is known to law enforcement authorities, has a history of violence and is considered armed and dangerous, according to police. They advise anyone who sees him not to contact him but to notify authorities of his location.

He is described as white, 5 feet, 11 inches tall, weighing 220 pounds, with short red hair. He has tattoos on both sides of his neck. The names “Yvonne” and “Alyssa” are on the left side, and the name “Jaquelin,” on the right, according to police.

Anyone with information regarding the assault or Wallace’s location is asked to call the Police Department’s dispatch center at 916-264-5471, 911 or Sacramento Valley Crime Stoppers at 916-443-4357, or submit an anonymous tip using the free “P3 Tips” smartphone app. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
