Randall Taylor Jr., 23, is wanted for felonious assault with a firearm. Luis Leiva, 48, who has been on the list since October, is wanted for assault, burglary and domestic violence.

Taylor, who was also last week’s Fugitive of the Week, is wanted for a shooting last month on Massachusetts Avenue. Desmond Johnson, 30, was shot in the foot, and Taylor fled by car. He was spotted by police in South Lorain but fled on foot and has not been seen since. Taylor is also the primary suspect in other recent violent crimes in the Lorain area, according to Marshals.

Leiva is wanted for a string of incidents in 2009 in which he violated a protection order and broke into his ex-wife’s apartment and got into altercations with her and others in the home.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Taylor, Leiva or anyone else on the Dangerous Dozen list is asked to contact the Marshals at 1-866-WANTED. View the complete Dangerous Dozen list below.

According to an e-mail from acting Chief Deputy Marshal Andrew Deserto, 27 most-wanted fugitives have been caught since the Dangerous Dozen list was created in May 2010.
