A West Mifflin teen is wanted in a weekend shooting that left another borough teen hospitalized.

On Monday, West Mifflin police issued a warrant for Daniel Greer, 18. He is charged with aggravated assault, attempted homicide and violation of the Uniform Firearms Act, along with other violations in relation to a Sunday afternoon shooting in the 800 block of Division Street, in which he injured a 17-year-old girl and damaged three vehicles.

The victim stepped outside of her home and was shot by a young man driving a four-door sedan, West Mifflin Lt. Theresa Savage reported on Sunday. The girl was found lying on the roadway and was transported to UPMC Mercy. Police said she is expected to recover.

Greer is 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs approximately 150 pounds, police said. He last was seen driving a burgundy or reddish vehicle with front end and passenger side damage, including a missing passenger side mirror.

“He should be considered armed and dangerous,” West Mifflin police Chief Ken Davies said. “We encourage all persons with any knowledge of his whereabouts to contact police immediately.”

Anyone with information is asked to call West Mifflin police at 412-461-3125.
