Derrick Mays Thomas, 23, of Mt. Sterling, Kentucky, is wanted for the Friday shooting of a man and woman in Owen County. The man was shot in the hand and leg and the woman was shot in the arm. Both were taken to hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.

Thomas left the scene in a gray 2003 Mitsubishi Galant with Kentucky license plate number 124-VET.
