Montandon teenager faces obstruction charge following Williamsport murder

WILLIAMSPORT — A Montandon teenager has been accused of helping obtain transportation for two homicide suspects after a Williamsport man was fatally shot on Jan. 9.

Antonio L. Carpenter, 17, is free on $35,000 unsecured bail after turning himself in to Williamsport police Monday afternoon. He is charged with hindering apprehension and obstruction of justice.

City police recommended the unsecure bail because they say he is cooperating in the investigation of the murder of Terell Henderson-Littles near the Pennsylvania College of Technology campus about 5:30 on Jan. 9. Littles, who reportedly went to the area to sell marijuana, was shot in the head.

Mirad Shabazz and Jason C. Gardner, both of Easton, are in the Lycoming County Prison charged with homicide and related counts. Police allege Shabazz fired the fatal shot.

Carpenter, who was prosecuted in Union County as an adult and in June was placed on three years probation in an theft case, is accused of helping arrange rides for Shabazz and Gardner from Easton and back again.

The night of the shooting they are alleged to have stayed in Milton before continuing on to Easton.

Another man is being sought also in connection with providing transportation, police said.

According to the arrest affidavit, when initially questioned, Carpenter told police the shooting suspects were from “south Philly” and he was trying to get them to Allentown from where they would be on their own to get home.

Based on their investigation, police said they learned Shabazz and Gardner met with Carpenter and the man being sought several days before and right after the shooting.

Littles, 21, was pronounced dead at the scene in an unnamed alley off Susquehanna Street.
