HANOVER TOWNSHIP — Investigators have released a photo of Tremaine Jamison, a suspect in the shooting of a man in Luzerne County.

Police believe Jamison shot Devon Brown, 29, in the head outside the Marion Terrace Apartment Complex along Mark Drive in Hanover Township around 8 p.m. Wednesday.

Officials say Brown knew the man who killed him.

“I want people to know this was not a random act. These individuals knew each other,” said Stefanie Salavantis, Luzerne County district attorney.

Investigators said two separate fights broke out just before 8 p.m. Wednesday. One fight involved two females and the other involved Jamison and Brown. During the fight, police say Jamison pulled out a gun and shot Brown in the head.

Troopers said Jamison is from the Harlem section of New York City and they believe he may have gone back to New York.

Jamison is described as a black man, 6’1″, weighing approximately 160 pounds. He was last seen wearing blue sneakers and tight fitting blue jeans with large white blotches and a long-sleeved white pullover shirt. He may also be wearing a blue denim shirt.

    Hi, i’m christopher hannah from orlando florida. my son grew from taking spice to becoming an addict to “flakka”.he goes insane acting like a zombie. looking possessed.Destroying properties of our neighbors and slamming his body on my husband’s car. seeking to devour or destroy anything that comes his way. we had to lock him inside his room till he tries to get a hold of himself. whenever he feels like taking them he steals from me or sells some of my property.this made him move with bad peers. this got my husband and i worried and disturbed knowing his state of mind. fortunately i came across a testimony of a mother who had similar issue with her husband until he got prayed for by diviner peterson of newgracefoundation. i also contacted him for prayers. now my son is doing fine in less than a week after he got prayed for by diviner peterson. he is totally free from flakka and spice. i’m so glad and urge anyone facing similar or any problem at all to also contact him for prayers via email address:newgracefoundation@gmail

    I am willing to bet these kids at the party really don’t know who their father is! I’d be surprised if they did.

      What a racist an irrelevant comment! When there’s a heroin overdose in the area do you point out that they are white?

      • Maryann

        The point I’m trying to make is that every day in the news there are people (black/white/Hispanic) breaking the law. Why is it when it’s someone that is black everyone has to point out they are black? I never saw a comment saying a child molester, meth addict, thief etc is a certain race. I mean they posted a picture we all see the suspect is black! It’s irrelevant period! Now go post under the picture of the white man that is having sex with his students that he is white…..and see if anyone says why is that relevant!

      You are a disgusting disgrace to the human race. One day you will die and that planet will be better for it.

    • Deidre

      Go sit you dumb self down always commenting on something with black folks. I SAY comment when one of you white dog kill your whole family like y’all do.

      • Maryann

        I agree. Pointing out race is not helping crime/violence. This is just a way for racists to hide behind a computer screen and say things they would not be able to say in public.

      • spicey

        C’mon now Deidre, calm down. Don’t make me call your probation officer. And by the way, leave George Banks and his family out of this.

      • spicey

        C’mon Mary Ann try to follow me a little better. Deidre said white people kill their families. I referred to Banks who of course isn’t white. Hugo didn’t kill his family. Banks did. Did you get all that, AND understand it? Please don’t make me come back and explain it all again because I’m too busy trolling on these other stories. Thankyou.

      • Maryann

        Yes you are 100% accurate he killed is family. He was psychotic. But it has no bearing on this case. I was just sticking to facts and trying to say yes there is a problem with violence in this area but race is irrelevant. I don’t like the racist remarks because regardless all races are committing crimes.

    We need to get rid of the scum like this from NY etc.
    Don’t ya all understand they come here for the easy handouts.
    I have seen it first hand working in social services.
    This area has gone to hell and no one is doing a thing about it.
    stop the handouts and they will stop coming
    we need more law enforcement presence.
    drug tests and background checks for all outsiders who come from low income neighborhoods out of town and out of state.
    No job should equal no free or reduced housing, food stamps, cash assistance, etc.
    Get off your lazy butts and get working. Plenty of ditches to dig.

    Hanover used to be a nice place to live back in the 50’s all you had to worry about was bad weather and flooding now a days the flooding has a new meaning sad!

      • Mad Dog

        Yeah, bring us back to the 1950’s … when we feared Communism, god, and burned fossil fuels like garbage. You want to live like the 1950’s? Give up your cell phone, get off the internet, refinance all your savings and retirement accounts to 1950’s rates, and trade in your fuel-injection luxury car for a lead gasoline guzzling, unreliable POS. Not everyone wants to relive the 50’s you selfish jackass.
