Mobile Police are hunting for a gunman who shot up a gas station, wounding the cashier inside. They say the attack appears to be random, and that's why they want this guy off the streets. They've turned again to "FOX10 News Fugitive Files" for help.

This is 35 year old Ernest Cannon. Police tell us on Sunday, December 30th last year, Cannon tapped on the window of the Discount Zone Citgo Station at the corner of Azalea Road and Airport. when the cashier approached, that's when police say Cannon pulled a gun, and started blasting away. The cashier was hit by flying glass, but is ok. Cannon disappeared.

Investigators don't know why they believe Cannon shot up the station, but the bottom line is he put someone else's life in danger, and they want him in custody

Cannon is 5 feet, 11 inches tall, weighing 180 pounds. He's charged with Second Degree Assault, but there's nothing like this on his record, which includes nothing but drug arrests. Police are concerned he might randomly target someone else.

If you have seen Cannon, or know where he is, contact M-P-D immediately by calling the "FOX10 News Fugitive Files-Crime Stoppers Hotline" at 251-208-7211. Remember when you call, you don't have to leave your name.
