Police said Charles Cabiness shot Monica Gay in the forehead while she was visiting her sister at the complex. He is described as black, 5 foot 7 and 165 pounds, with long braids and possibly a goatee. Police said he he recently lived in California Kirkbride and St. Clair, police said.

Police described Cabiness as armed and dangerous. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call Pittsburgh Police at 412-232-7800. Callers can remain anonymous.

Police said Gay was shot while she was in the front yard of a home in the 700 block of Cresswell Street. Someone called 911 at 11:41 a.m. Saturday, and paramedics found Gay alive and lying in the yard. She was taken to UPMC Mercy, Uptown, where she died.

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.
