Ganeshan is described as being approximately 179 centimetres tall, with dark skin and black hair.
Police allege he may have had a hand in Tuesday’s shooting, which left a man hospitalised with stomach wounds.
The victim, aged in his 20s, was shot in his own home shortly before 1pm.
The incident prompted a quick response from heavily armed officers in the Tactical Response Group, who stormed the property believing the shooter was still inside.
However, he had already allegedly fled the scene and no firearm was found on the premises.
Speaking on Tuesday, Detective Sergeant Tom Morris told The West Australian that the public should be alert, but not alarmed.
‘It’s not an incident where it’s an unknown suspect. Both parties – the victim and the suspect – are believed to know each other,’ he stated.
