An apparent plot to raise money by robbing drug dealers led to the recent arrests of two men in connection with a November shooting in Sutersville that left two injured, according to court documents.

Curtis Thomas Everett, 26, of Glassport, and Chad William Wolfe, 34, listed as homeless, are being held at the Westmoreland County Prison on attempted homicide, robbery and related charges.

Troopers are looking for a third suspect, Aaron Devaugntae Brown, 26, of Jeannette. He faces the same allegations.

Investigators charged the three men in sealed court documents and arrested two of them last week. Arrest papers were released Tuesday.

Police reported that the three suspects were part of a group of five people who decided to rob drug dealers they knew with a handgun to get cash. The other two people have not been charged.

The group allegedly agreed to target a Butterfly Lane home in Sutersville just before midnight Nov. 16. Everett and another man hid outside and jumped a juvenile male and a man as they walked inside, according to court papers. The male resident tackled one suspect and the pistol was fired numerous times, police said.

A bullet grazed the resident’s head, and the juvenile was hit in the left leg and abdomen, police said. Both were taken to Pittsburgh hospitals.

Police said Everett and the other alleged attacker got into a car driven by Wolfe and fled to Jeannette, discarding their clothing along Mars Hill Road in Sewickley Township. It’s unclear if they got any money.

Wolfe and Everett are being held on $250,000 bail each. Neither suspect had an attorney listed in online court records. Preliminary hearings are set for Monday.
