City Police Chief Updates Search for Homicide Suspects

Lebanon City Police Chief Todd Breiner provided the Lebanon Valley Daily News with an update into the ongoing investigation of the homicide of a 16-year old city youth at North 6th and Crowell Street around 3:30 Wednesday afternoon:

Investigators are looking for two Hispanic men, believed to be in their late teens or early 20’s. One of them pulled a gun during the dispute involving the victim, and the passenger of the car the victim was driving.

Police believe the meeting between the two groups had been planned and the shooting that resulted was not random.

Chief Breiner says some of the officers who responded were rolling video with the police department’s brand new body worn cameras, but security camera footage from the community will also be examined:

Anyone who can provide supplemental information about this fatal shooting should contact Lebanon Police at 717-272-2054.

Wednesday’s homicide is both the second homicide in the city in two months, as well as being the second that occurred along Crowell Street.

Chief Breiner doesn’t think there’s a connection:

On September 1st, 30-year old Josue Miguel Rivera was shot and killed along the 800-block of Crowell street following an argument.
