The Bureau of Indian Affairs and the FBI are working with police to find a suspect involved in an eastern Utah shooting.

Bureau of Indian Affairs officials said in a Facebook post that as of Sunday evening, police were still searching for Bradley James Moore.

Officials say Moore is a suspect in a Sunday shooting in the Fort Duchesne area west of Vernal.

Police say Moore fled on foot and is considered "armed and dangerous."

Moore is described as 32 years old, 5 feet 9 inches tall and 155 pounds (70 kilograms).

The Bureau of Indian Affairs did not immediately return a message seeking details on the shooting and whether Moore has an attorney.
