Pennsylvania State Police have identified the two victims of a shooting Sunday evening near High Street in Shippensburg as well as two “persons of interest” in the case.
Shakur Richard Myers, 21, of Philadelphia, died at the scene of the 7:55 p.m. shooting on Rotz Avenue, behind the 200 block of High Street, according to police. The second victim, 21-year-old Samir Rodney Stevenson of Philadelphia, was taken by Life Lion helicopter to Geisinger Holy Spirit Hospital Carlisle Center, where he is listed in critical condition, police said.
Police are looking for Quentin Eric Furlow Jr., 20, and Clayton Steve Wilson, 20, both of Philadelphia. Furlow may be driving a gray 2011 Infiniti G37 with Pennsylvania registration KZJ4211, and Wilson may be driving a gray 2009 Nissan Maxima with Pennsylvania registration KYE0169.
Myers was found dead by troopers after “suffering fatal gunshot wounds,” according to the police report. Stevenson suffered gunshot-related injuries, police said.
Shippensburg University Media Relations Manager Megan Silverstrim said Monday morning Myers and Stevenson were not students at the university.
