Homicide

On Wednesday, 9-2-2020, Steelton Borough Police were dispatched to the 500 block of North Front Street for a report of shots fired. Upon arrival, officers located the victim, 39-year-old Ismail Lewis, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Mr. Lewis did succumb to his injuries on scene. The Steelton Borough Police Department began an investigation with the support of the Dauphin County District Attorney's Office, the Dauphin County Forensic Unit, and several other surrounding jurisdictions. This incident appears to be a targeted event, however, with the suspect(s) still at-large, there is still concern for the safety of the community. Chief Anthony Minium would like to thank the overwhelming support from the community and the Swatara Township Police Department, who continues to assist in the investigation.
