BELLINGHAM - Police are asking the public's help in finding a felon who allegedly fired several shots at a Henry Street home early Sunday, July 8.
No one was injured in the shooting, which happened about 5:30 a.m. in the 2500 block of Henry Street, police said.
Sergey Zhuk, 26, came to the home attempting to contact someone he knew, but the six adults inside wouldn't let him in. Moments after he left, several gunshots were heard from an apparent drive-by shooting. Zhuk was seen leaving in a gold, four-door 1995 Acura Legend, police said.
Zhuk is white, about 5-foot-10 and 190 pounds with blue eyes. He currently has short brown hair. People who see him should call 911 immediately; do not contact him as he's considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information about the drive-by shooting is asked to call Detective Dan Kelsh at 360-778-8690.
In 2008, Zhuk and another man broke into a unit at Bellingar Storage. They tripped the alarm and were found inside by an employee and a Bellingham police officer.
Zhuk was armed with an 8-inch knife and charged the officer, who fired a single shot at him. Zhuk was hit in the upper arm and fled. He was arrested a day later; he had 151 ecstasy pills on him.
He was sentenced to five years in prison for burglary, assault and drug possession.
He was released from prison in June 2011 but was still under community supervision. He has been arrested several times in the last year for violating the terms of his supervision, according to a Department of Corrections spokeswoman.
