Costa Mesa police are seeking the public’s help in finding a man wanted on suspicion of attempted murder.

Luis Antonio Luevano-Guzman, 47, is suspected of shooting and wounding another man at a Costa Mesa strip mall in the 800 block of West 19th Street at about 11:30 p.m. June 15, police said Friday.

Luevano-Guzman is described as Latino, 5 feet 7 inches tall and 245 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
