STUART - Police are searching for a 20-year-old man whom they say fled the scene after shooting a person Saturday at the Crossings at Indian Run Apartments off Southeast Indian Street.

Ri'ahj Lee Thomas, of Fort Pierce, entered an apartment with four other people and shot an individual, according to a Stuart Police Department Facebook post. Police did not indicate what time the incident occurred, where the victim was shot or how serious the injury or injuries are.

Police said Thomas is considered to be armed and dangerous. "Do not approach," the Facebook post advises.
