Ibrahm Elkahlil Bouaichi is suspected of killing Karla Elizabeth Dominguez Gonzalez on July 29, the Alexandria Police Department said Tuesday. He was last seen in a stolen Nissan Altima. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call 911. 

“Bouaichi should be considered armed and dangerous, and poses a potential threat to anyone who comes into contact with him,” police said in a statement. 

Gunshots were heard on S. Greenmount Drive early July 29. Officers responded at 6:20 a.m. and found Dominguez Gonzalez dead near her apartment.

Police described Bouaichi as 33 and of Middle Eastern descent. He stands 6-foot-2 and weighs about 180 pounds. The car he was driving, a black 2013 Nissan Altima, has the Maryland license plate 1CN3103.

Dominguez Rodriguez was from Venezuela and was known there for competing in beauty pageants, a spokesman for the city said.
