A nationwide manhunt is underway for 27-year-old Francis O'Donoghue after two men were injured in a gun attack in Essex on 27 August.
Mr O'Donoghue is wanted on suspicion of attempted murder.
Police investigating the case said: "Detectives in Essex have not ruled out the possibility that he has travelled to Northern Ireland and so are appealing for friends and family or members of the travelling community here to contact Essex Police."
Mr O'Donoghue has been described as being approximately 5ft 11ins tall, of medium build, has short-brown hair and has protruding ears.
Officers believe he may have made contact with the travelling community in NI.
As the search enters its third week, the advice being given is not to approach the man but to call Harlow's Major Investigation Team on 01279 621802.
