WILKES-BARRE — State police at Wyoming on Tuesday filed drunken-driving charges against Kevin S. Lockman, 52, of Shavertown, after investigating a crash on the North Cross-Valley Expressway.

Lockman allegedly drove the wrong way into oncoming traffic, crashing into two vehicles on Dec. 18, according to the criminal complaint.

State police allege Lockman had a blood alcohol level of .243 percent after the crash. A driver is considered legally intoxicated in Pennsylvania with a BAC of .08 percent.

Two counts of driving under the influence and five traffic violations were filed with District Judge Martin Kane in Wilkes-Barre.

WILKES-BARRE — City police filed an arrest warrant for a man suspected of firing a gun at the Sherman Hills apartment complex during a domestic dispute on Monday.

Police responded to Building 332 after receiving a report of a domestic dispute involving a shot fired at 10:40 a.m. Officers were advised that the suspect, Sherman Wilborne, was no longer at the scene and that the argument had been about money, police said.

The dispute began as a pushing match, but the suspect had a gun in his hand that discharged a .45-caliber bullet into an interior wall, police said. No one was injured.

Police could not locate Wilborne on Monday.

On Tuesday, police filed an arrest warrant charging him with prohibited possession of a firearm, discharge of a firearm into an occupied structure, aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person, making terroristic threats and disorderly conduct, according to court records.

Wilborne, 29, is described as black, 5 feet, 7 inches tall, 150 pounds, and was last seen wearing white baseball shorts, a white T-shirt, a blue jacket and a blue winter hat.

Anyone with information should call police at 826-8111 or dial 911.
