MUSKEGON, Mich.- He’s wanted for attempted murder, and police say Adrain Wayne is responsible for pulling the trigger in a shooting on the streets of Muskegon a few years ago.

“The person is obviously prone to violence,” Steve Hetherington U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force Supervisor said.

The incident happened on a July morning in Muskegon as children and families were playing at Ada and Kenneth streets.

A man police identify as Adrain Wayne is believed to have jumped out of a white truck, shooting at a man he had problems with.

“We believe he fled the state initially after the shooting but there’s a good possibility that he’s back in the state,” Hetherington said.

That was in 2013 and since then the U.S. Marshals have joined the hunt for a man they call extremely dangerous.

“He has a very violent past, he’s got prior arrests for assault, causing injury for a police officer and narcotics violations,” Hetherington said.

One bullet was found lodged inside a motorcycle after the shooting and may hold the key to conviction. Wayne is now facing attempted murder in addition to other charges building up after he took off.

Hetherington said Wayne spent his whole life in the Muskegon area until after the shooting. Authorities believe someone may be helping him elude police.

The U.S. Marshals are now offering a cash reward for help getting him off the streets.

34-year-old Adrain Taylor Wayne is 5 feet 7 inches tall and 200 pounds with brown eyes and black hair.

Authorities say he should be considered armed and dangerous. If you see him call 911. If you know where he is you’re asked to call the U.S. Marshals at 877-926-8332.
