Gulfport Police are asking for your help locating a wanted man. Police Chief Leonard Papania said that Larry Jerome Poole, 28, is wanted for aggravated domestic assault.

Papania said that on Friday, December 13, police responded to a domestic disturbance situation on South Carolina Avenue. According to authorities, Poole was engaged in a verbal altercation with his wife. The situation turned physical and officials say Poole's wife fled the residence. That is when Pool allegedly fired a shot from an unknown type of handgun that struck his wife in the leg.

Papania said that the woman was transported to the hospital where she was treated for a non-life threatening gunshot wound.

Officials described Poole as a black male weighing about 165 pounds and standing 6 feet tall.
