The bullet missed its target in a Parkland yard, went through the windshield of a passing car and struck a woman in the arm and chin.
Pierce County sheriff’s detectives believe Jaykeen Shaquille Huff, 21, fired that shot and three others during an argument with an acquaintance April 4.
Huff, who is considered armed and dangerous, is charged with two counts of first-degree assault and drive-by shooting. A warrant has been issued for him.
Investigators said Huff is known to frequent Federal Way and Seattle.

The shooting unfolded April 4 in the 11300 block of B Street South after Huff and his girlfriend showed up because his girlfriend wanted to fight her cousin.
After the fight, Huff pulled out a pistol and began pointing it at people, according to charging papers. He then ran across the street and allegedly fired two shots at his girlfriend’s cousin.
Road construction had caused traffic backups in the area and it was after Huff fired at the woman that one of the bullets pierced the windshield of a Pontiac Bonneville and grazed the driver on the chin and arm.
Huff and two women got into a green SUV, possibly a Ford Explorer, and sped away. He has not been located.
Detectives recovered four shell casings at the scene.
The woman who Huff intended to shoot told investigators “Huff has been trying to assault her” since he accused her of stealing marijuana in February, records show.
Huff is black, 5-feet-7 and 210 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477).
