3rd suspect arrested for shooting that injured 4 in Lebanon


LEBANON, Pa. (WHTM) – A man wanted on charges in connection to a shooting that injured four people in Lebanon has been arrested after nearly four months on the run.

Sean Sykes, 28, of Harrisburg, was taken into custody Thursday at a home in the 100-block of East Cottage Place in York, U.S. Marshal Martin Pane said.

Sykes and two others are charged with attempted homicide, conspiracy to commit homicide, aggravated assault and other charges regarding a Jan. 19 shooting in the 1100 block of Church Street.

His co-defendants, 26-year-old Eric McGill, of Lebanon, and 28-year-old Dominique Shumate, no fixed address, were arrested later that day.

Police believe the trio targeted residents of the home and fired over 20 shots, wounding two men and two women, all between the ages of 36 and 64. The victims were treated at a hospital and were in conditions that varied from stable to critical.

Officers heard the gunshots and attempted to stop a vehicle with no lights on. The driver fled to a parking lot where the occupants fled on foot. Shumate was arrested after the foot chase and McGill, the driver, was taken into custody a short time later, police said.

Police recovered two handguns and magazines that were thrown from the car during the pursuit.

McGill and Shumate are in Lebanon County Prison in lieu of $1-million bail. Sykes is being held without bail.
