HARRISBURG - Police have arrested a Harrisburg man for a shooting incident that left his ex-girlfriend dead and a second person seriously injured.

Lagenza Junious, 36, is accused of killing 21-year-old Adreanne Evans and wounding her companion inside her second-floor apartment in the 900 block of North 6th Street, police said.

Evans was killed by a gunshot wound to the head at around 6 a.m. and was found dead in her bedroom, police said.

Her companion, a 19-year-old Uptown man, was being treated at Penn State Hershey Medical Center for a shotgun wound to the face and arm and was listed in serious condition. His name was not immediately released.

A second woman and an infant were inside the second-floor apartment when the shooting occurred but were not harmed, according to police.

Police said Junious and Evans lived in the same apartment building and had been involved in a relationship until recently.

According to investigators, a witness who knows Junious saw him leave the building and walk away while reportedly bleeding.

Responding officers followed a blood trail to an apartment building in the 200 block of Boas Street, but Junious showed up at the police station a short time later and surrendered, police said.

He had suffered a cut to the face, apparently from shattering glass as he broke into the victim's apartment, and was taken to Harrisburg Hospital for treatment, police said.

He was later charged with murder, attempted homicide, aggravated assault, burglary, reckless endangerment, and a firearms offense.

Anyone with additional information on the incident may call Harrisburg police at 717-255-3175 or 717-255-3115.
