Ross Wanted by Police

An argument on the 2400 block of South Lowell Street ended with gunfire Tuesday night, and police are searching for the man who they believe pulled the trigger.

Derrick Raymond Ross, 20, is suspected by police of shooting a 37-year-old man at approximately 5:27 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 2. The victim was later rushed to a hospital, but police report the victim's injuries were not life-threatening.

Witnesses identified Ross as the shooter, according to police reports. Ross fled the scene before police arrived.

Ross should be considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached, according to Det. John Ritter.

Ross is five-feet-nine-inches tall and weighs approximately 150 pounds. He has black hair and a scarred knuckle on his left hand.

As of Monday, Nov. 8, Ross was still believed to be at large in Arlington, Ritter said.

According to police department spokesman Matt Martin, Ross is not known to have any prior criminal record.

"We are looking for him and we expect to find him," Martin said. "But we want people to know that he is out there and they need to be on the lookout for him. If they come into contact with him, people need to let us know where he is."

Martin declined to release the victim's name or the extent of his injuries.

Police are offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to Ross's arrest.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is encouraged to call the Arlington County Crime Solvers hotline at 800-673-2777. Citizens can remain anonymous and will not be asked to testify in court.
