Duquesne man wanted in Uniontown shooting, cops say

Paul Peirce

Uniontown police obtained an arrest warrant this week for a 20-year-old Allegheny County man wanted for attempted homicide for allegedly firing a 9mm handgun at a carload of people outside a gas station Feb. 5.

Police also are seeking Xavier “Buckets” Cash of Duquesne on five counts each of aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and simple assault and single counts of illegal possession of a firearm and illegal discharge of a firearm, according to court dockets.

Five people were inside the vehicle that was fired at multiple times outside the Marathon gas station at 104 West Fayette St., Officer Jamie L. Holland wrote in court papers. A male victim was treated at Uniontown Hospital for a gunshot wound to his ankle.

Holland said police were dispatched to the gas station at 10:19 p.m. for reports of a shooting. However, when officers arrived, both the shooter and the vehicle were gone. The victim and other occupants of the vehicle were interviewed later at the hospital.

Cash was identified through video surveillance cameras, Holland said.

He noted Cash was convicted of a felony escape charge in Mercer County in 2017 and is not legally allowed to possess a firearm.

Cash is described as a black male approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall and 145 pounds.

Anyone with information on Cash’s whereabouts should call police at 724-430-2929.

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.
