Larry Short is still wanted.
Police have identified three parolees wanted in connection with the shooting of a Benicia man in his home early Tuesday morning.The shooting is related to a dispute about a car sale, Benicia police Lt. Mike Daley said. Larry Short, 22, who has ties to the Vacaville area, is suspected of shooting the 34-year-old Benicia man in the shoulder in his home in the 100 block of El Bonito Way around 2:30 a.m., Daley said.The unidentified shooting victim remains in stable condition at an area hospital, Daley said.Short is wanted on a $1.5 million warrant for attempted murder, kidnapping, robbery and a no-bail parole violation, Daley said.The shooting incident began around 1 a.m. Tuesday when the Benicia man visited friends in the 200 block of Woodrow Avenue in Vallejo, police said.Benjamin Taft, 33, and Marques Agee, 31, both of Vallejo, also arrived coincidentally at the Vallejo home to confront a Vallejo man about problems Agee was having with a late 1990s Cadillac that Agee bought from the Vallejo man, Daley said.Taft and Agee demanded money from the Benicia man when they were told he sold the Cadillac to the Vallejo man, police said. Taft and Agee held the Benicia man at gunpoint until Short, armed with a handgun, arrived at the Vallejo home, Daley said.Taft and Agee remained at the Vallejo residence with the Benicia man’s truck while Short drove the Benicia man to his El Bonito Way home. Short told the Benicia man to turn over his cash, credit cards and other valuables, Daley said.The Benicia man shut a bedroom door and Short fired his handgun through the door, hitting the Benicia man in the left shoulder, Daley said. Short then fled the home.The Benicia man’s truck was stolen from the Vallejo residence and Vallejo police found it in the McDonald’s restaurant parking lot near Interstate Highway 80 and Georgia Street, Daley said.Taft and Agee are wanted on a $750,000 arrest warrant for kidnapping and robbery. Both also have no-bail arrest warrants for parole violations, Daley said.Taft is also wanted in Solano County on a $200,000 warrant for burglary and a $150,000 warrant for threats, false imprisonment and possession of drugs, Daley said.Agee is wanted in Santa Clara County on a $200,000 warrant for counterfeiting, Daley said.”All three suspects should be considered armed and very dangerous,” Daley said in a prepared statement. “All three are wanted parolees who may be very desperate for money, cars or shelter. We prefer these three surrender peacefully to any law enforcement agency, but we also ask anyone with information as to their whereabouts to call us or their local police department immediately,” Daley said.Please call the Fugitive Watch hot line at 1-800-9-CAUGHT (1-800-922-8448) or text us at 408-355-0999 or CLICK HERE to send a confidential email tip, if you have any information that can help solve this crime.
