YCSO Looking For Two Men Wanted For Attempted Murder In Dewey-Humboldt

Yavapai County Sheriff’s deputies are looking for two men wanted for an attempted homicide in Dewey-Humboldt. Deputies were called to the 13-thousand-200 block of McCabe Street Saturday afternoon at around 4:40 p.m. on reports of a shooting. After several interviews, deputies learned 67-year-old Bruce Moore from Humboldt and 49-year-old Dwight Elia from Dewey, fired shots at a man by standing by his vehicle following a confrontation. Witnesses say Moore was using a handgun and Elia fired a “flare” gun. The shots missed the man, with one round hitting the top of an SUV. The victim was standing behind the SUV at the time. Residents of the house, which included a child, were home at the time. Authorities say the two suspects left in a dark blue Chevy Tahoe driven by 41-year-old Serra Melton from Prescott Valley. A short time later, Melton was found inside the Tahoe, but the two men were not there. Melton admitted to knowing the men, but didn’t know they were going to shoot at someone. Authorities say Melton changed her story along the way. She was arrested and charged with hindering prosecution and facilitation of discharging a firearm. A $1,000 reward has been issued for information leading to the arrest of the two suspects. Moore is a white male, with blue eyes and grey hair. He stands six-foot-four and weighs 190 pounds. Elia is a white male, five-foot-eleven and weighs 188 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. They should be considered armed and dangerous.
