PLANT CITY — A 22-year-old Zephyrhills man is wanted in a July 22 shooting that wounded a woman, according to Plant City police.

Rodarius Recardo Young faces a charge of attempted first-degree murder, police said. He is believed to have left or is planning to leave the area. He may be accompanied by Arshaneki Wright, a 26-year-old Plant City woman described as his girlfriend by police.

The two may be driving a 2009 black 4-door Chevrolet Impala that is registered to Wright with tag NVYY25.

The shooting incident took place at about 4:20 p.m. in the 600 block of Bethune Drive. A 20-year-old woman suffered multiple gunshot wounds, police said, after being fired upon by the passenger of a silver Nissan with no visible tag and dark tinted windows. The woman was taken to a hospital for medical treatment.

Plant City police did not release her name, the extent of her injuries or say what evidence led to an arrest warrant being issued for Young.

Young has a history of arrests in Hillsborough and Pasco counties, records show. His last Hillsborough arrest was on Feb. 23 on charges of battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting an officer with violence, robbery by sudden snatching and battery (second offense.)

Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay is offering a $3,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of Young. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at (800) 873–8477, send anonymous tips, video or photos to crimestopperstb.com or send a mobile tip using the P3 Tips app.
