Authorities asked the public on Friday to keep an eye out for a fugitive suspected of pulling a gun and opening fire during a Veterans Day argument in an El Cerrito-area neighborhood, killing a woman and wounding a man.

Thanh “Tony” Pham, 34, allegedly shot the victims with a pistol in a residential driveway in the 4200 block of 54th Place about 4:45 p.m. Tuesday, then fled in a dark-colored sedan, according to San Diego police.

Patrol officers arrived to find 42-year-old Thuy Nguyen and a 36-year- old man suffering from gunshot wounds to their chests, SDPD Lt. Mike Hastings said. Medics took them to a hospital, where Nguyen was pronounced dead shortly after arrival. The other victim, whose name has not been released, was expected to survive.

Pham is a 5-foot-8-inch, roughly 150-pound Vietnamese man with brown hair and black eyes. He may be driving a black Scion TC, California license No. 6ZZD604.

Police have not disclosed a suspected motive for the shooting.

Anyone with information about the case was asked to call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477 or contact the agency online at Tipsters may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
