The suspect is described as a Hispanic man with black hair and brown eyes. He’s about 5-foot-9 and weighs 170 lbs.
The incident took place shortly before 11 p.m. on Jan. 23, after a fight outside of La Isla restaurant on Parkland Street, authorities said.
A 22-year-old victim told police he confronted a man outside the establishment, which led to a verbal altercation. During the dispute, the suspect fired a gun multiple times, striking the man and a 32-year-old bystander who was grazed by a bullet, authorities said.
The suspect then chased the first victim inside the restaurant and proceeded to hit him multiple times with the gun, police said.
Both victims suffered injuries that were not life-threatening, authorities said.
Cordero Miranda is wanted for two counts of aggravated malicious wounding, one count of attempted aggravated malicious wounding, three counts of using a firearm in commission of a felony and two counts of discharging a firearm within a building.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 703-792-7000.
