Detectives with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station are asking for the public’s help in locating Noah Daniel Becerra, suspected of attempted murder in connection with a shooting at a fast-food restaurant last year.
The shooting occurred in January 2018, when Becerra allegedly shot the victim while he was in a fast-food restaurant parking lot in Canyon Country, Deputy Tina Schrader of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department wrote in a news release issued Wednesday.
The victim was described as a 20-year-old Hispanic man who survived his injuries, she said.
Becerra is described as also being 20 years old, Hispanic, about 6 feet tall, 170 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
He is wanted in connection with a shooting that happened at a shopping center on Golden Valley Road 18 months ago.
On Jan. 6, 2018, shortly after 6:30 p.m., deputies responded to a reported assault with a deadly weapon call in Canyon Country.
When paramedics and deputies arrived at the scene, they found one victim who had suffered a gunshot wound.
Paramedics ended up treating a man for a gunshot injury then taking him to Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital, Supervisor Michael Pittman of the Los Angeles County Fire Department said at the time.
Deputies began searching the area for the gunman who had reportedly fled the scene in a vehicle.
Shirley Miller, spokeswoman for the SCV Sheriff’s Station, confirmed at the time of the shooting that it was not believed to be gang-related, but was related to some kind of personal dispute between two men in their 20s.
The victim and the suspect apparently knew each other, Miller said.
At the time of the search, deputies roped off a section of the busy Golden Valley Plaza, just outside Sizzler and Popeyes.
