Lebanon Police are searching for the person or persons involved in a shooting Friday night that left a Lebanon woman injured.
Juana Sells of Lebanon was shot in her left hand as she and her boyfriend went to her sister’s residence in Upton Heights about 10 p.m., Friday, June 11, said Det. Donnie Self of the Lebanon Police Department.
Self said Sells and her boyfriend noticed several people in the vicinity of Sullins Street, near the Lebanon Housing Authority main office, as they approached her sister’s residence. The detective said the couple reported hearing numerous gunshots a pretty good distance away from where there were, but even so, “she got (struck) with a stray bullet.”
