MOSS POINT -- Police are searching for a man considered armed and dangerous and wanted in a shooting Tuesday night that critically wounded a man.
Moss Point Deputy Chief Art McClung said Terrance Coleman, 28, of Moss Point, is wanted on charges of attempted murder and armed robbery.
Coleman is accused of robbing the man at gunpoint, then shooting him in the chest. The wounded man, who has not been identified, is in critical condition in intensive care at a hospital.
The shooting occurred in the 4000 block of Max Street about 9:55 p.m. Tuesday.
Coleman, McClung said, "is dangerous and he needs to be off the streets no matter what city he is in."
In February 2009, prosecutors dismissed capital murder charges against Coleman and Lederrick Raphel "Cooper" Brown shortly before they were set to go to trial. The two were accused in the April 14, 2006, shooting deaths of Gary Riley, 26, and Brandon Taylor, 24. Riley and Taylor were shot in a vehicle on Hilma Street.
Prosecutors dropped the charges primarily because no eyewitnesses would come forward to testify against them.
Police are asking anyone with information on Coleman's whereabouts to call the Moss Point police at 475-1711 or Crime Stoppers at 1-877-787-5898. All calls will remain confidential.
