Police: 3 York City women assisted would-be cop killer
Three York City women have been arrested in connection with a November incident in which a man allegedly shot at a Northern York County Regional Police officer during a traffic stop.
Police say Trev Bowies Jackson III, 24, of 114 E. College Ave., fired three shots from a .380-caliber handgun at Officer Lynn Anderson in the parking lot of the Manchester Crossroads Shopping Center along Route 30 in Manchester Township. It happened about 10 p.m. on Nov. 22, after Anderson stopped Jackson's green Buick LeSabre for swerving in and out of his lane of travel on Route 30, then smelled marijuana coming from the car, charging documents state.
As Jackson fired three times at Anderson's face with a .380-caliber handgun, Anderson dove out of the way and returned fire, squeezing off seven rounds, Northern York County Regional Police Chief Mark Bentzel said. The Buick was struck with four bullets, two each in the driver door and driver window, the chief said.
Jackson was shot in the left hand when Anderson returned fire, according to police. His vehicle was found abandoned the next morning.
He remains a wanted fugitive on charges including attempted homicide and aggravated assault on a police officer.
Cristina Lissette Perez, Xeomarie Velez-Quinones, and Cathilia J. Laureano, were arrested Friday by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive for assisting Jackson after the shooting, according to police.
Perez, 23, of 223 Park Place, is charged with hindering apprehension or prosecution, giving false information to law enforcement, according to the release. Police say she was a passenger in Jackson's car during the incident.
Velez-Quinones, 33, of 428 W. Philadelphia St., is charged with hindering apprehension or prosecution, providing aid, and false information to law enforcement, according to the release. Police say Velez-Quinones gave a ride to Jackson after the shooting.
Laureano, 23, of 337 W. Market St., is charged with hindering apprehension; providing aid, false information to law enforcement, harbor or conceal, and conceal or destroy evidence, according to release. Police say Laureano bandaged Jackson's wounds, gave him clothing, disposed of his clothing, and arranged a ride for Jackson with Velez-Quinones.
The three women were arraigned Friday, and bail was set at $250,000 for Perez and $100,000 for Velez-Quinones and Laureano, according to police.
Police say they anticipate more arrests in connection with the incident and anyone with information should call 911.
