Pennsylvania State Police charged a former Shippensburg University student with homicide in the Oct. 6 shooting near High Street that left one man dead and another injured.
Police filed the charges against Clayton S. Wilson, 20, of Philadelphia, in the shooting death of Shakur Richard Myers, 21, also of Philadelphia. Police said Myers was found dead beside a vehicle on Rotz Avenue, an alley behind High Street, after the 7:55 p.m. shooting.
The second victim, Samir Rodney Stevenson, 21, of Philadelphia, was taken to Geisinger Holy Spirit Hospital Carlisle Center in critical condition.
Wilson was taken into custody Oct. 10 on a drug-related charge in connection with the shooting of Myers and Stevenson, according to Trooper Megan Frazer, public information officer for state police Troop H. Bail was set at $750,000.
A preliminary hearing on the drug charge was held on Oct. 21, and Wilson was bound over for trial in Cumberland County Court.
Wilson then was arraigned on the homicide-related charges on Oct. 25. He was charged with criminal homicide, criminal attempt to commit criminal homicide, two counts of aggravated assault, firearms not to be carried without a license and recklessly endangering another person, according to Frazer. Wilson was denied bail on those charges and remains in Cumberland County Prison.
Wilson no longer is a student at Shippensburg University, according to an email from the Office of University Communications and Marketing signed by Police Chief Michael Lee and Donta Truss, vice president of enrollment management, student affairs and student success.
Another SU student, Quentin Furlow Jr., 20, of Philadelphia, is being sought as a person of interest in the investigation, according to police. Furlow may be driving a gray 2011 Infiniti G37 with Pennsylvania registration KZJ4211.
Anyone with information on Furlow’s whereabouts is asked to contact Trooper John Boardman at 717-249-2121.
Furlow has been banned from campus, according to the email from SU officials.
The email reiterated that state police found the events of Oct. 6 to be an isolated incident that was related to drug activity. It said there is no danger to the university community.
"Shippensburg University prioritizes the safety of our community, works to support and protect our students, faculty and staff and has increased patrols and expanded video surveillance," the email said.
