     Why doesn’t the City of Lancaster save some money and hire some Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts to replace the current detectives? They would do a much better job. Almost anyone could do a better job than these detectives!

***   The Lancaster Police just put out the below press release. There is no mention of the gun (click here).
       On July 28, 2019, at approximately 12:53 PM, officers from the Lancaster Bureau of Police were dispatched to the 1st block of W. Filbert Street for a shooting.   Officers arrived on the scene and located a male victim, who suffered a gunshot wound to the legs and groin.   The victim was conscious and alert and was transported to the hospital by ambulance for treatment.   The victim was hospitalized and is being treated for non-life threatening injuries.   The victim was identified as a 52 year-old male resident of Lancaster City.  
     Investigators conducted witness interviews and processed the scene for evidence.   Investigators are also checking surveillance cameras from around the area.   Based on the preliminary investigation, the incident does not appear to be a random act of violence.   Investigators learned that there was a verbal confrontation between a group of males and the victim, at which time the victim was shot once.   The group of males, who were known to the victim, fled the scene on foot after the shooting and were last seen heading towards Manor Street.
     Anyone with information regarding this shooting incident is urged to call the Lancaster City Police at (717) 735-3300 or Lancaster City-County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-322-1913.   You can also click the Submit a Tip button on our website, www.lancasterpolice.com, or Text a Tip to Crime Stoppers by texting LANCS plus your message to 847411.   Tipsters may remain anonymous and do not have to give their names.

**   The other federal lawsuit against Lancaster Police Officers Timothy Sinnott and Jacob Bingham is here.

*    LNP has their five sentence “story” on the shooting far down on their homepage (click here). LNP reporter Dan Nephin did a live video from the scene yesterday and it was so awful LNP has actually taken it down. Nephin misspoke multiple times and it was just a disaster.


[Editor’s note: Today’s promised story will come tomorrow.]

     Police have not yet released any information on a potential suspect or a motive.
     They do say people who live in the area are safe.
From the Fox-43 report (click here).
     How would police know the people who live in the area are safe? There’s a shooter on the loose! Do the police know something they aren’t telling the public? Who owns the gun they found?
     Ronald Brian Gray filed a federal lawsuit against two Lancaster Police Officers on October 24, 2018 (click here). Those two officers are named in another federal lawsuit against the Lancaster Police that is ongoing. Gray’s suit was dismissed on May 8th of this year reportedly because Gray received a large payment (see yesterday’s post).
     Gray was arrested on June 27th of this year (see the video below). He was charged with: M2 Obstruct Admin Law/Other Govt Func and M3 Disorder Conduct Hazardous/Physi Off. His preliminary hearing was this Friday which his docket indicates he did not attend but the charges were held over for Common Pleas Court. He was shot yesterday.
     Who shot Ronald Brian Gray?

    I hope atty Matthew Weisber follows up on the retaliation heaped against his client since settling. The new charges sound fishy.

    Cases are dismissed by plaintiff with prejudice when settlements are reached, as you see here where legal fee responsibilities are spelled out

    As Lancaster has gotten so “big city” are our downtown hotels advising tourists where not to venture I wonder. If not, tourists, stay north of King St. !!!!

    The loKal people better keep the tourists in the downtown safe area. Hmmm, wonder if gun on roof was the one used in the this shooting.

    Perhaps a body armor rental could be setup in the lobby of the convention center. Could rent to tourists and locals. Could be a real money maker.
