NAMPA, Idaho (KBOI) - Police say a Nampa man accused of shooting his wife is still on the run and could be dangerous if confronted. The Nampa Police Department has a $1 million bond out for Raudel Gonzalez, who is wanted for aggravated battery.

"When we have an incident such as this that happens, we round up and use every resource we have available," said Sergeant Joe Ramirez, spokesman for the Nampa Police Department.

The police department has enlisted the help of the the Greater Idaho Fugitive ask Force, which is made up of U.S. Marshals and other law enforcement agencies. Police are also asking anyone who knows or has seen Gonzalez to call in with any information.

But police warn anyone who comes across Gonzalez to let police handle the confrontation.

"A person who knows that  they've committed a crime such as he did and has law enforcement looking for him isn't somebody you want to corner as a citizen," Sergeant Ramirez said.

Police say Gonzalez could be armed and is expected to be violent, so anyone who comes across him is encouraged to keep a safe distance and call police.

Gonzalez's wife's name has not been released, but police told us as of noon on Monday she was still recovering in the hospital.
