The tactical response group swooped on a home on Hibiscus Road in Maddington this afternoon. Everyone inside was told to come out with their hands up but the man they were seeking, 41-year-old Anthony John Valentino, was not there.
It is the house where a shooting took place last night. The victim was shot in the neck but survived. The man in his 30s had surgery today.
Police believe Mr Valentino is in a silver Mitsubishi 380, registration number 1CYK355. He is described as fair skinned with a medium build, approximately 192cm tall with a shaved head.
They say he is dangerous, unpredictable and may still be armed.
Police say do not approach him but call police immediately.
