UPDATE 1:30PM- The District Attorney’s officer reports the suspect is in custody.
The Lancaster County District Attorney’s office say they are looking for a suspect in the shooting of a 19 year old Monday night in Penn Township, Lancaster County.
Authorities say they are looking for 23-year-old Shawn Darionne Bergman
Bergman is charged with attempted homicide, aggravated assault and related counts for the shooting at an apartment in the 400 block of South Main Street.
The victim, a 19-year-old Warwick Township man, was shot in the face. He is currently hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.
Bergman, of Knights Bridge Way in Lititz, is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information on his whereabouts, should contact Northern Lancaster County Regional police (717-733-0965), the Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office (717-299-8100), or 911.
Bergman is a light-skinned black man about 6-foot-1 inches tall, weighing 250 pounds. He was wearing glasses on Monday.
Northern Lancaster County Regional police Detective Theresa Stauffer filed charges Tuesday at 11 a.m., with approval from Assistant District Attorney Christine L. Wilson.
Detective Stauffer also charged Bergman with stealing a 9mm pistol from a relative on Monday. The pistol is believed to have been used in the shooting.
The District Attorney’s office says they have multiple witnesses to the shooting. One of the witnesses called 911 and went with police to the apartment to indicate where the shooting happened.
Bergman pulled a pistol, pointed it at the victim and eventually fired, the witnesses told police.
When police arrived, they found the victim was slumped over onto a couch. He was struggling to breathe and had obvious head trauma consistent with a gunshot wound.
