York man guilty of shooting at police officer

Trev Bowies Jackson

YORK, Pa. (WHTM) – A man accused of shooting at a police officer in Manchester Township has been found guilty on all counts.

Trev B. Jackson II, 25, of York, was convicted by a jury Thursday on charges of attempted first-degree murder, assault of a law enforcement officer, and reckless endangerment.

Sentencing is scheduled for April 25.

Jackson in November 2015 was stopped in the parking lot of the Crossroads Shopping Center for suspected DUI. When he was asked to step out of his car for an odor of marijuana, police say he pulled a handgun from his waist and fired three rounds at Northern York County Regional police Officer Lynn Anderson.

Anderson returned fire as Jackson fled. The officer was not injured by the gunfire.
