July 20, 1997

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Chambersburg man was shot in the head early Saturday and a suspect is still at large, Chambersburg Borough Police said.

Joseph Brumfield, 24, of 179 Second St., was treated and released at Chambersburg Hospital after being shot with a small-caliber handgun at about 3:24 a.m., police said.

Brumfield was shot at the corner of West South Street and Hollywell Avenue, police said.

Police have a warrant to arrest Anthony L. Jackson, 28, a black male of no fixed address, on attempted murder and aggravated assault charges.

Police said they didn't know of a motive.

The gunshots were loud enough to wake up some Civil War reenactors who were camping in a park near the Coyle Free Library, several blocks away from the shooting, the reenactors said.
