NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) - Newport News Police need help getting a teenager officers say is violent off the streets.
Harold Eley with the Newport News Police Department said officers were looking for 17-year-old Antwan Shyquann Miller of Newport News. Miller is adjudicated as an adult, and police are able to release his name and photo to the public.
Miller has several active warrants in the City of Newport News. Currently, Miller is wanted on charges of malicious wounding, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, contempt of court without jury, pointing/brandishing a firearm, possession of a firearm and two Commonwealth summons.
Eley said Miller and two other men brandished weapons at a family as they sat on their porch on Sept. 23. The victim told police she was on the porch with her daughter and three children when a vehicle pulled up and three suspects got out.
The victim said all three produced handguns and threatened them. One suspect, identified as Chester Daniel McCright of Newport News was arrested and charged.
No one was injured.
Eley said Miller is exhibiting erratic violent behavior. He is described as a black male standing 5’9” and weighing 130 pounds.
