FORT MEADE (FOX 13) -

Polk County Sheriff's looking for a suspect in an attempted murder investigation.

Just after 8 a.m. Saturday, deputies were called out to Langford Street and Albritton Avenue in Fort Meade for a victim with a gunshot wound.

The female victim was airlifted to the hospital.

Detectives say the victim had been in Bartow with Jordan Pollard, 27, and another man when Pollard and the victim began arguing.

Pollard pulled out a gun and shot the victim one time in the stomach while traveling southbound on Highway 17, just north of Fort Meade.

The unidentified suspect who was driving a gold Lincoln Town Car, stopped the car.

Pollard took off on foot and the other suspect continued to Fort Meade where he contacted emergency medical services.

There is an active warrant for Pollard's arrest. Pollard is known to visit the Bartow and Fort Meade communities as well as the Combee Road and Reynolds Road area of Lakeland.

Anyone with information in Pollard's whereabouts is urged to contact the Polk County Sheriff's Office.
