MOSS POINT -- A second man is being sought by Moss Point police on attempted murder and aggravated assault charges in connection with a shooting Tuesday night on Max Street, Deputy Chief Art McClung said.

Marcus Larone Williams, 25, and Terrance Coleman, 28, are accused of robbing a man, then shooting him in the chest around 9:55 p.m. The victim is currently listed in critical condition.

Both men are considered armed and dangerous.

Coleman is well known to law enforcement authorities.

In February 2009, prosecutors dismissed capital murder charges against Coleman and Lederrick Raphel "Cooper" Brown shortly before they were 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.

To report information, call the Moss Point Police Department at 475-1711 or Crime Stoppers at 1-877-787-5898. All calls are confidential.
