Police said Thursday they are searching for a Swissvale man who allegedly shot two people in separate incidents last month in North Braddock.

Courde Daye, 20, is charged with aggravated assault, robbery, attempted homicide and firearms violations in connections with the November shootings, court records show.

North Braddock police responded just after 2 p.m. Nov. 19 to Jones Avenue where a 44-year-old man had been shot in the leg, authorities said. The victim survived his wounds and said he’d been inside the Cole Breeze mobile electronics story when a man, later identified as Daye, robbed him at gunpoint. The man told officers he was shot as he struggled with Daye.

About 8:15 p.m. the next day, police again responded to Jones Avenue for a shooting, authorities said. An 85-year-old man had been inside Fa’s Market when a man – again identified as Daye – came in and began shooting at him. The man, who survived, was shot in the lower back.

Authorities said Daye should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information as to his whereabouts is asked to call 911 or Pittsburgh Crime Stoppers at 412-255-8477.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
