OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office is hoping the public can help find a fugitive who's considered violent and dangerous.

Isaiah Tryon, 21, is wanted for shooting with intent to kill and violation of a deferred sentence.

Oklahoma City police said Tryon went to a house in the 1400 block of N.W. 96th Street back in October 2010. Police said he appeared to be intoxicated, and tried to take his two-month-old child from the house.

When the child's mother refused to let Tryon leave with the baby, she said he pulled out a handgun and started shooting at her while she was holding the infant.

Tryon has been on the run ever since. The Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office said he should be considered armed and dangerous.

"He's an individual who has a violent history, was actually issued a deferred sentence for some violent acts as well, so we consider him armed and dangerous. We really need to get him off the streets, and we're asking anyone who might know his whereabouts not to confront him but to give us a call," said Mark Meyers, Oklahoma County Sheriff's Department.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts should call the Warrant Hotline at (405) 713-6262.
