Police: Jealousy ignited beating with a handgun

MILTON — A fight during which two men were pistol-whipped in Lewisburg early Saturday morning occurred because one of the four suspects was upset his girlfriend was with the other men, police said.

The incident occurred just after midnight Saturday.

Jabri Brown, 19, of Lewisburg, Antonio Carpenter, 17, of Montandon, Jeremy Drummond Jr., 18, of Williamsport, and Aaron Johnson, 19, of Williamsport were arrested Saturday afternoon in Milton after police recognized their car from a description given by the victims, according to police.

The four men entered the house at 104 S. 8th St. in Lewisburg on Saturday and spotted Drummond’s girlfriend with the home’s resident and two friends, which appeared to make them upset, police said.

Brown then pulled a handgun and struck one of the men in the back of the head, while another person struck the second victim in the mouth before fleeing the residence, police said.

When police were interviewing witnesses at the house, they found two .22-caliber bullets laying at the top of the stairs, according to court documents.

Shortly before being arrested, Brown, Carpenter, Drummon and Johnson, were seen leaving an apartment in Milton Village, police said. After obtaining permission to search the residence, police found a Harrington and Richardson .22-calibur handgun inside a backpack, which they believe was used in the incident, police said.

Brown is charged with two counts of burglary, two counts of aggravated assault and one count of carrying a firearm without a license, all felonies. He also faces two misdemeanor counts of simple assault.

Johnson and Carpenter were held on probation violations and awaiting charges, while Drummond was turned over to Williamsport Police.

Drummond was charged March 15 in Lycoming County with one count of attempted homicide and two counts of aggravated assault, all felonies. He also faced charges of possession of an instrument of crime and reckless endangerment.

Carpenter is also facing charges in Lycoming County, polcie said.

Carpenter alleged to have helped obtain transportation for two homicide suspects. In that case, Carpenter faces charges of hindering apprehension and obstruction of justice.

At the time, Williamsport police recommended the unsecured bail because Carpenter was cooperating in the investigation of the murder of Terell Henderson-Littles near the Pennsylvania College of Technology campus Jan. 9. Littles, who reportedly went to the area to sell marijuana, was shot in the head.
