Marc Castle now has a bounty on his head as a $1,000 reward is being offered for his capture after he opened fire on a home in Winchester on Tuesday.
Castle, 40, has lived much of his life in Warren County and has family here. Therefore law enforcement officials believe he may try to return to his hometown to hide out. Authorities stress he is to be considered armed and dangerous and the public should not try to approach him but should instead contact 911 to report his whereabouts. People can also contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 931-962-INFO or call Detective Sgt. Kelly Glass with Winchester Police Department at 931-967-3840.
Castle is wanted for questioning in connection with 20 rounds that were fired into a house on North High Street in Winchester. Authorities say he used a 223-caliber rifle and the bullets passed through the house of the intended target and narrowly missed hitting a 70-year-old woman who lived next door.
Castle has been able to elude capture despite a massive manhunt in the Winchester area. Police say he fled the scene on bicycle.
Castle has a history of brushes with the law, with convictions for driving offenses as well as assault. He began his life of crime early when he robbed a financial institution on Chancery Street back in 1993 along with two other teens.
Lawmen in Winchester have not revealed why they believe Castle opened fire on the house.
