A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a potentially dangerous man allegedly involved in a shooting near Dapto Public School while on parole.
Michael Black, 32, is wanted by authorities on a revocation of parole warrant after police charged him with concealing the day time shooting last year.
Police will allege Black and a co-accused, Rian Kinloch, drove to Derek Scott Ferguson's Horsley home on November 15 to confront him for unknown reasons.
CCTV footage from the street captures the two men arrive at Ferguson's home in Denham Drive in a silver Ford Falcon and have a brief conversation with someone inside the property through the front door.
It is alleged one of the duo then tried to rip open the front screen door, before Ferguson allegedly pulled out a silver pistol and shot three rounds at the men through the screen door.
Police allege Kinloch and Black then fled on foot towards Dapto Public School, located less than 100 metres down the road.
Police arrested Kinloch three days later and Black on January 14.
The duo were charged with concealing a serious indictable offence of another.
Police charge sheets previously tendered to court claim both men "failed, without reasonable excuse" to bring information about the shooting to the attention of police, knowing said information "might be of material assistance in securing the apprehension, prosecution and conviction of Derek Ferguson".
Black was released on police bail following his arrest however found himself back behind bars on January 21 after failing to report to police as per his bail conditions.
In Wollongong Local Court, Black's bail was reinstated after his lawyer tendered a certificate from the Radio Doctor showing his client had been incapacitated at home due to a foot injury.
Police issued a public plea on Monday for help finding Black, who they say is known to frequent the suburbs of Lake Illawarra.
He is described as being of Caucasian appearance, about 175cm tall, with a medium build and black hair.
Black may be wearing a moon boot and has a distinctive tattoo above his eyebrow.
Police have warned members of the public not to approach Black as he could be dangerous given he has allegedly used firearms in the past.
People should instead call Triple 0 immediately.
Anyone with information regarding Black's whereabouts is urged to contact Lake Illawarra Police Station on 4232 5599 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/
