SEQUOYAH COUNTY, Oklahoma -

The Sequoyah County Sheriff's Office is asking for help locating a shooting suspect. Sheriff Ron Lockhart said Anousith Mike Inthavong should be considered armed and dangerous. They released a photo of him Friday.

Inthavong may be driving a silver, four-door 2011 Toyota Camry with Arkansas tag 466-SKK. He is from the Fort Smith area.

The 27-year-old Laotian man is wanted in connection with the shooting of 42-year-old Melinda Stephenson in Muldrow. Investigators say Inthavong and another man shot her then dumped her near a ditch off of Old Highway 64 east of Muldrow.
