According to a release from Lebanon City Police, a domestic argument Saturday night led to a shooting that put one into a local medical center and another into jail.
Officers were dispatched at approximately 11:30pm on Saturday, August 24, to the 200 block of South Quince Street for a report of a motor vehicle accident, according to the release. Upon arrival, officers were said to have encountered a 20-year-old Lebanon man who was suffering a single gunshot wound to the lower abdomen. The release states that officers learned the driver of the vehicle had struck an object while attempting to take the victim to the hospital.
According to the release, police discovered that the victim had been shot inside a residence on the 500 block of Chestnut Street. Shortly after that time, the alleged assailant, Carlos Barroso-Rodriguez, a 25-year-old Lebanon man, surrendered to police. The shooting was said to have occurred after a domestic argument became physical. The victim and the assailant were said to share mutual acquaintances and police say the shooting was not random.
The handgun recovered in the incident was noted to have been reported as stolen by South Lebanon Township Police in 2016.
According to the release, Barroso-Rodriguez will face charges of two counts of Aggravated Assault, one count of Simple Assault, one count of Recklessly Endangering Another Person, and one count of Receiving Stolen Property (Firearm).
Although Barroso-Rodriguez’s status does not yet show up in the state’s unified judicial system, the release notes that Barroso-Rodriguez has already been arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Maria Dissinger and is now incarcerated at Lebanon County Correctional Facility in lieu of $75,000 bail.
The victim was transported to a local medical facility where he is now being treated.
