Silent Witness needs the public's help in finding a suspect in the May 17 early-morning shooting of a teenage boy.

Alejandro "Alex" Barrera, 23, was believed to have left the home in the area of 38th Avenue and McDowell Road in a green 2000 Ford Expedition about 4 a.m., Phoenix police Officer James Holmes said.

The victim was found in the front yard of the residence. The 17-year-old boy suffered critical injuries and is permanently disfigured. 

Barrera had an identical twin brother, but Barrera has a distinct tattoo of a pit bull on the back of one of his shoulders, Holmes said.

Barrera is Hispanic. He is also described as 5'9" tall and weighs 150 pounds. He was last seen driving a 2000 green Ford Expedition with Arizona plates 670-RHZ.

Other wanted fugitives:

Police are also looking for 31-year-old Matthew Sonnie. He is wanted for probation violation on an aggravated DUI charge.

Sonnie is 5'5" tall and weighs 200 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. He has a medicine wheel tattoo on his right arm and a lowrider, heart and cross on his left arm.

There is a warrant out for 49-year-old Manuel Perez. He is wanted for probation violation on an original charge of attempted sexual conduct with a minor.

Perez is 6'1" tall and weighs 210 pounds. He has a shaved head and brown eyes.      

People with any knowledge of their whereabouts are asked to contact Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or 480-TESTIGO. The public can also call Silent Witness detectives toll-free at 1-800-343-TIPS. Your call will remain anonymous.
