The shooting allegedly involved a confrontation the drivers and passengers of the two vehicles had with a group of individuals that allegedly included Sulak.

According to court documents, both vehicles were driving along when a man jumped out in front of the Escalade, causing both vehicles to stop. A verbal altercation ensued between the man who jumped into the road and the driver of the Escalade.

The documents state the driver of the Chrysler got out and during the altercation a heavyset man in a white shirt — believed to be Sulak — approached the group and asked them what the problem was, while holding a firearm with an extended magazine.

The drivers and passengers of both vehicles then drove away, and Sulak allegedly fired shots at them.

According to court documents, the man driving the Chrysler was struck in the elbow by a bullet. The injured man was later taken to an area hospital and subsequently airlifted to an El Paso hospital for further treatment.

Individuals with knowledge of Sulak’s whereabouts should contact the Roswell Police Department at 575-624-6770 or Chaves County Crime Stoppers at 1-888-594-TIPS.

The press release from the Police Department states callers can remain anonymous, while callers to Crime Stoppers might be eligible for a reward if their information leads to an arrest or conviction.
