| Sunday, Feb. 13, 2005

State police in Uniontown have issued an arrest warrant for a man who allegedly shot a 2-year-old Fayette County boy early Saturday morning.

According to police, Marques Anthony Moore, 24, of Uniontown, was inside the residence at 704 Woodview Terrace, North Union Township, when a handgun he was handling discharged. The bullet traveled through a wall and struck Avery Michael Fuller as he slept in his bed.

Police said the child was taken to Uniontown Hospital after the 4:27 a.m. incident, and later flown to Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh. A hospital spokeswoman said the child was not a patient at the facility last night.

Moore, described as a black male, 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing 175 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes, is charged with aggravated assault, simple assault and reckless endangerment.

Anyone knowing Moore's whereabouts is asked to contact state police at 724-439-7111.

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.
