The U.S. Marshals Service is working to track down Tresean Coy, who is considered dangerous by police. Coy is a known gang member, and he's wanted on three warrants that all relate to a shooting in Richmond's southside last month.

Crime scene photos show a white trucked parked in an alley off of Stockton Street in Richmond. Investigators say Tresean Coy approached the vehicle and shot the driver three times in the head before fleeing. Amazingly, the victim was able to call 911 himself.

"He was transported to MCV Hospital where he survived his gunshot wounds," said Sandy Ledbetter with the U.S. Marshals Service Task Force.

With a bullet still in his brain and one eye gone, the victim is still recovering in the hospital. Coy is still running loose in the River City.

"We fear if we don't catch him soon, that he is going to hurt someone else," said Ledbetter.

Coy has a history of dangerous and violent behavior.

"Tresean has been involved in some robberies in the city, in some drug activity as well and involving some firearms."

His last known address was on Rasper Court in the Foxberry subdivision of Chesterfield County, but he is well known on Richmond's southside.

"He hangs out in the 3700 block of Stockton, hangs out over in the Maury St. Apartments and over in the Broad Rock Area," said Ledbetter. "He has at least three different baby mammas, he has a lot of friends in the area, a lot of people know him. He's a very popular guy over in that area."

Investigators warn that dealing with Tresean could turn out badly.

"At any moment, he could turn on them. You may think he's your friend, but you do something he doesn't like, he's going to turn on you, and we're going to be investigating your crime," said Ledbetter.

The U.S. Marshals are asking for your help in their hunt for Tresean Coy.

"To keep others from being hurt. He is a very dangerous individual," said Ledbetter.
