Winchester police searched Friday for a wounded woman and the “dangerous” man accused of shooting her.
Clarence Ronnie Reynolds, 25, is considered a suspect in the shooting of Megan Deshay Griffin, 22, about 6 a.m. Friday at M&W Auto Repair on S. Highland Street, said Winchester police Capt. James Hall. Reynolds is also believed to have pistol-whipped Griffin in the face. There might have been a “romantic relationship” between Reynolds and Griffin at one time, Hall said.
Reynolds, who has a tattoo of a crown and the word FOE on his neck, was last seen on a black 1986 Honda cruiser-style motorcycle and is considered armed and dangerous.
Griffin was apparently shot in a leg, Hall said. The wound might have been from a ricochet, he said. She has red hair and a tattoo of the word “Blessed” across her throat.

After the shooting, Griffin walked to a Washington Street apartment complex in Winchester and met a friend there. “They cleaned her up a little bit and tried to talk her into going to a hospital but but she refused,” Hall said. “She contacted someone from Lexington to come pick her up.”
Griffin was last seen getting into a black Ford Mustang in Winchester and possibly heading to Lexington. Her cell phone pinged on a tower in Lexington Friday morning, Hall said.
