Man shot by troopers out of hospital, jailed without bail

Lancaster

A Lancaster County man shot and wounded by a state trooper has been released from a hospital and jailed without bail.

Jeromey C. Barnes, 37, of Conestoga, was shot outside a Paradise Township home early Tuesday after police say he drove at troopers who were trying to arrest him.

Police said Barnes was wanted on several warrants and they had information he was at a home in the 300 block of South Belmont Road. The troopers were walking up to the house when they saw Barnes in a van.

Barnes struck a police vehicle and drove toward other troopers as he tried to flee. The troopers shot the van multiple times and one of the rounds hit Barnes, police said.

A woman in the van and the troopers were not injured.

Barnes is charged with nine counts of aggravated assault, six counts of simple assault, four counts of reckless endangerment, burglary, resisting arrest, and related offenses.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 5.

Court records show the arrest warrants were for theft, receiving stolen property, fleeing and eluding and other charges.
