LANCASTER — Police arrested a Lancaster man early Monday in connection with a weekend shooting that left one man with a gunshot wound in his leg.
Kentavious Stefan Mills, 22, of 4464 Mt. Carmel Road, is charged with attempted murder, two counts of possession of a firearm by a person convicted of a violent crime, three counts of unlawfully carrying a pistol and one count each of possession of a firearm during a violent crime, pointing and presenting a firearm at a person and possession of powder cocaine, according to a Lancaster Police Department news release.
On Saturday, police went to the 700 block of St. Paul Street after receiving complaints about shots being fired shortly before 5:30 p.m. They found Byron Lamont Miller, 23, of Heath Springs, with a wound in his leg, the release states. Miller was treated at Springs Memorial Hospital and later released.
A witness told officers the shooter drove a burgundy Chevrolet Caprice. Investigators identified Mills as a suspect and learned that on Sunday he threatened an associate of Miller’s with a weapon, according to the news release.
At 1:28 a.m., a patrol officer spotted Mills driving the Caprice near South Main Street. Police arrested Mills and found that he had a .22 caliber revolver, 1.23 grams of powder cocaine and two sets of scales in the car, the release states.
He remains jailed at the Lancaster County Detention Center. His bond was not immediately available.
Records with the State Law Enforcement Division show that Mills was convicted for a non-violent burglary in 2007. The same year, he was sentenced under the youthful offender act for strong-arm robbery for unlawfully carrying a weapon and strong-arm robbery. Two years later, he was convicted for another non-violent burglary, malicious injury to personal property and some drug charges.
