In York, Pennsylvania, police are searching for a teenager from Reading who allegedly opened fire on two students from WIlliam Penn High School at a football game. One was shot in the back, the other in the midsection. The shooting victims were Darius Allen, 23, of York, and Antwan Jackson, 20.

The suspect ‘s described by police as a teen who stands 5’, 5”, tall and weighs approximately 100 pounds.

“This occurred during the fourth quarter of the game against Lancaster’s J.P. McCaskey High School on September 9,” police said.
Sixteen-year-old Stephon Damien Brown has been ordered to stand trial on more than 2,000 criminal charges. He was charged as an adult with counts of recklessly endangering another person, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm by a minor, and criminal mischief.

The U.S. Marshals fugitive task force arrested Brown in Lancaster on 14 October.

He was charged with over 2,000 counts of recklessly endangering another person due to over 2,000 people being at the game. Witnesses say that some of the shots went in the direction of the crowd.

“Brown is also a suspect for several other shootings in York,” police said.

The two known victims were last reported to be in stable condition.

“We think that he’s an indiscriminate shooter,” Lt. Troy Bankert, commander of the city’s detective bureau said. He also added that Brown is still believed to have a gun and to be in the York area.

In the wake of the shootings, school officials are considering changes, including moving home football games from Friday nights to noon Saturdays.  Those attending the game were kept inside the stadium until officials determined the scene was safe.
