Charges filed in Baker Street shooting, HarrisburgPosted by Jack Howser on Wednesday, February 16th, 2011 @ 4:25 pm.
HARRISBURG—Just got the info on charges filed against at least one person involved in the high-profile shooting on Baker Street in Harrisburg two weeks ago.
One Darius J. Barners, 21, of West Barnett Street in Harrisburg, has been charged with Aggravated Unlawful Use of Weapons by carrying a handgun uncased, loaded and immediately accessible while not on his own land, home or fixed place of business; and Aggravated Discharge of a Firearm for knowingly discharging said weapon in the direction of one Michael L. Simpson, both of these occurring on Feb. 1 at the Baker Street location.
Simpson is the guy reportedly of Terre Haute, Ind., who was taken to the local hospital for medical treatment and clammed up, “not wanting to get involved.” He wasn’t shot, but apparently may have been beaten with the weapon in question.
According to our sources, there is a 16-year-old male involved in the matter, and police are still looking for him, but there’s been no word on where he may have gone. Latest information on him has it that he might have been the one who sustained the bullet wound, and may be leaking from some unnatural open spot, which would cause pause in most people, but if he’s trying to run from a crime, this might not be so unusual for his crowd.
