The Otter Tail County Sheriff's Office and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension have issued an appeal to find 36-year-old Phoutthasa Prathane.

He reportedly fled the scene from a shooting around 2:15 p.m., and drives a black 2011 Toyota Tundra, with a wrap-around brush guard on the front, and the Minnesota plate 109 2CD.

He is described as 5'9" tall, with black hair and brown eyes.

"IF YOU SEE PRATHANE DO NOT APPROACH – LAW ENFORCEMENT CONSIDERS HIM TO BE ARMED AND DANGEROUS," the BCA says.
