SCV Sheriff's Detectives Seek New Leads in Locating Suspect Wanted for Canyon Country Drive-By Shooting

Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station COBRA detectives are reaching out to the public for assistance in locating a suspect wanted for an attempt murder that occurred in August of 2015.  It is detectives’ hope that by refreshing the case to the public, new leads can be developed that will lead them to the successful apprehension of a wanted fugitive.
On August 28, 2015, at approximately 8 a.m., the suspect identified to be Kenneth Mitchell, a male Black, age 30, drove by a condo complex located on the 28000 block of Sarabande Lane in Canyon Country, and fired a handgun at a male adult victim, striking him in the leg. The suspect then fled the scene, and has remained outstanding to this date.  

Detectives are seeking ANY new leads that may assist in locating suspect Kenneth Mitchell.
Anyone with information is asked to please contact Detective Finn at (661) 255-1121 ext. 5153. Anonymous tips may also be submitted through, or by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
