Washington police looking for man considered armed and dangerous

WASHINGTON, Pa. — Washington City Police have been looking for Maceo Saunders for two months. He’s wanted for attempted murder. Officers said he shot a 17-year-old girl Thursday night at about 8:30, but she was not the intended target.

Investigators said Saunders was driving past another vehicle last night at the intersection of Ridge Avenue and Shannon in Washington. He reportedly shot five times into another vehicle, hitting the teen girl. Police said she was with another relative.

Saunders has been wanted by Washington police since March 10 when officers said he allegedly shot a man in the stomach. That incident occurred two blocks away from Thursday night’s incident.

Wanted Person. If you have any information regarding this individual, contact this department at 724-223-4226.
