WILKES-BARRE — A person of interest in a Friday morning shooting in Wilkes-Barre has been named by authorities in Luzerne County.

Police want to talk to Jordan Stevens, 27, in connection with the shooting of two men outside Boulevard Townhomes on South Welles Street.

One of the victims was wounded in the hip and has been released from the hospital. Authorities say the other victim was shot in the head and is in very critical condition.

The shooting happened just before 1 a.m. Friday. According to police, surveillance video shows three men heading for the complex. Once they walked by, the shooter pulled out a gun and fired.

So far, police do not have a motive for the shooting.

Stevens is believed to frequent the  Brownsville area of Brooklyn, New York.  He is described as a light-skinned black male, approximately 5’10″ and about 170 lbs, with short black hair and brown eyes.

He was last seen wearing a light-colored t-shirt and shorts with black or dark-colored footwear. Stevens has several tattoos, including one of the grim reaper on his right arm from elbow to wrist and another of the initials “J.T.” on his right wrist.

Stevens is wanted by the Pennsylvania Department of Parole and is believed to be armed and dangerous. He should not be approached.

Anyone with information about Jordan Stevens is asked to contact the Wilkes-Barre City Police Department at (570) 208-4200 or Luzerne County 911.
