Police search for 'armed and dangerous' couple in Madeira shooting


Madeira police said they are searching for two "armed and dangerous" persons of interest in a weekend shooting.

They say the a man and a woman fled after several shots rang out in the rear of an apartment in the 7300 block of Shawnee Run Road about 9 a.m. Sunday.

A male shooting victim was taken to Bethesda North Hospital.

His name and condition were not released.

Officers described the two persons of interest as a black man and woman driving a red 2006 Infiniti G35 with Ohio license plate HBU-1087.

The car was later recovered Sunday, but police said no one was in custody.

Police confirmed this shooting is the second one they have investigated at this complex in the past few months - and the same apartment is involved.

The first incident occurred in July, leaving neighbors on edge.

Jennie Sanchez said she heard the shots, but didn't think it was gunfire at first.

"I heard some loud noises. It actually sounded like one of the kids down the street coming and banging at the door to come get our kids out to play," she said. 

It wasn't until the family was getting ready to leave the house for a soccer game when they saw police and yellow caution tape.

"The neighborhood is pretty concerned, not very happy. So, everyone has been on the phone texting out, trying to see what's going on and what we could to keep ourselves safe," Sanchez said. 

Safety is a big concern for neighbors in the area, especially with so many children in the neighborhood right around the corner from the crime scene, residents said.

"Where this happened was the school bus stop. Had it been 24 hours later, it's literally where they would have been waiting to go to school," said Jennifer Katafiasz. 

Anyone with information is urged to call the Madeira Police Department: 513-272-4214.
