Vereen was wanted after allegedly firing a gun into an occupied vehicle near Timothy Drive and W. Shore Drive in Longs on May 6, according to a police report.

The victim reported his vehicle was hit by about five bullets.

According to the report, police canvassed the area around Dogwood Drive for Vereen, but he was not located.

Police said last week Vereen should be considered armed and dangerous.

The report stated the victim was “somewhat uncooperative” and refused EMS, although his injuries were described by authorities as superficial.

In addition to the attempted murder charge, Vereen is also charged with possession of a weapon during a violent crime, according to online records.

As of early Friday morning, no bail has been set on Vereen’s charges.
