Shooting Investigation



On January 14, 2022, at approximately 2:43 A.M., Spring Garden Township Police were dispatched to a shooting incident in the 900 block of S. Edgar Street.

A resident of the 900 block of S. Edgar Street reported that he was alerted by his alarm system of a possible break-in to his detached garage.  When he went outside to investigate, he was confronted near the doorway of the garage by a male subject brandishing a handgun.  The suspect ordered the victim to open the door, but the victim declined and began moving back toward his residence.  The suspect then fired multiple shots in the direction of the victim before fleeing the scene on foot.  Fortunately, the victim was not struck by the gunfire.

The suspect was described as a mixed-race male, approximately 5'9"-5'10" tall, with a thin build.  He was estimated to be in his late teens and was wearing all black clothing and a black mask.

The investigation is on-going and we would ask that anyone who may have information beneficial to the investigation contact Detective James Hott at (717) 843-0851 or
