Police search for suspect, 25, in Steelton shooting

Police are searching for a 25-year-old man suspected of shooting another man at a Steelton bar.

Authorities say Drakkari Lee Brooks of Steelton shot the 43-year-old victim in the parking lot of Jones Corner Bar in the 400 block of North Harrisburg Street early Saturday morning.

Officers were dispatched at around 1:50 a.m. after receiving word of a shooting. They located the victim, but he was unable to identify his shooter. He was then rushed to the hospital by ambulance.

Over the course of their investigation, police identified 25-year-old Brooks as the shooting suspect. Officials believe Brooks and the victim engaged in some sort of disagreement in the parking lot, which led to the victim being shot.

Police say Brooks fled in a silver or gray newer model sedan, possibly a Hyundai Sonata, with the driver's side mirror missing.

Swatara Township Police have an active arrest warrant for Brooks, charging him with criminal attempt homicide and firearms violations.

Anyone with information about this case may contact police at 717-564-2550. Officials warn the public that Brooks is considered armed and dangerous.
