Apartment Shut Down After Shooting

Posted on: 2:49 pm, January 3, 2014, by


WILKES-BARRE — City officials say charges are expected against two people and an apartment has been shut down after a shooting in that apartment at Sherman Hills in Wilkes-Barre.

Authorities say Lashawne Burgman, 31, and Catherine Thomas, 23, fled to a New Jersey hospital after Burgman accidentally shot himself in the leg on December 27. They believe they were trying to avoid police.

Authorities say they searched an apartment and found evidence of the shooting and what they called “distribution quantities” of marijuana and ecstasy.

The apartment was shut down by Wilkes-Barre’s code enforcement and cannot be rented out under the city’s “one-strike” ordinance.
