Arizona authorities are searching for a shooting suspect who was mistakenly released from jail.

The Pinal County Sheriff's Office says it never received the charging paperwork for 25-year-old Daniel Munoz Perez and he bonded out on $320 after being booked Dec. 16 on a misdemeanor warrant.

Perez is accused of shooting at Arizona Department of Public Safety officers on Dec. 10 outside a home in Casa Grande. Officers went to the house to follow up on an unspecified investigation.

Perez was injured by gunfire, admitted to a Phoenix hospital for treatment and held in a Maricopa County Sheriff's Office jail ward before being turned over to the Pinal County Sheriff's Office.

But Pinal County authorities say they weren't notified of the aggravated assault warrant on Perez until Dec. 23 — a week after he was released from custody.

DPS officials said Tuesday that the search for Perez continues.
