April 27 proved to be a busy day for the Chambersburg Police Department as a double arrest was conducted at 5:30a.m. and a shooting incident was both reported and addressed around 3:05p.m.
At 5:30a.m., The Chambersburg Police Department arrested two women at S. Main St. 200 block. A 24-year-old woman and her 20-year-old sister were both arrested for their outstanding warrant for Burglary and Simple Assault. The older woman, specifically, had previously broken into a person’s apartment and assaulted them.
Later that day around 3:05p.m. a report was made to the Chambersburg Police Dept. of shots being fired at the Second St. playground. Luckily, no injuries were reported and police have since identified two juvenile male suspects involved in the shooting incident.
One of the male juveniles has already been charged and turned over to the Franklin County Juvenile Probation Department. The second male juvenile will also be facing charges which will be filed through the Franklin County Juvenile Probation Department.
No full names were released for the two juveniles.
Chambersburg is often regarded as a quiet and historical town that once served a significant role during the American Civil War.
With rich and cultural places such as the memorial park, the heritage center, and the old jail, Chambersburg has become a city surrounded by its culture.
Moreover, Chambersburg is home to the private liberal arts college, Wilson College, which hosts over 1500 students who seek a brighter future within different concentrations.
Chambersburg also contains a downtown with various stores and restaurants such as the Veroni Café, Bistro 71, square 1, and the falafel shack, which provide a variety of cultural foods and traditions.
However, like every city, some parts are more dangerous than others and criminals are bound to appear here and there.
Luckily, we have a police department that acts quickly and accordingly to serve justice and to keep Chambersburg protected.
