GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Gulfport Police need your help finding two men they believe were part of a shootout that ended at the Dirt Cheap in Gulfport last month.

Allen Christian Whitehead and Deonta Leon Glover are both wanted for Aggravated Assault. Glover was the man who showed up at the store bleeding from a gunshot wound.

Investigators believe on the afternoon of January 29, the two men got into a physical fight in the neighborhood near F Avenue and 31st Street. During that fight, police say both men pulled out guns and shot at each other. After Glover was hit, he jumped in an SUV, drove to the Dirt Cheap, and went into the store looking for help. He was taken to the hospital by ambulance.

That's where Glover has been receiving medical treatment, until Wednesday. Investigators said on February 11, he left the hospital. Now, police are looking for both men, who they warn should be considered armed and dangerous.

Whitehead is a 28 year old black male, 5'10” and 230 lbs. He may be driving a black Nissan Altima.

Glover is a 31 year old black male, 5'7” and 150 lbs.

If you've seen either man, you're asked to call the Gulfport Police Department at (228) 868-5959, or Crime Stoppers at (877) 787-5898.
