HARRISBURG — A man wanted for a fatal shooting in Hanover Township last year and a man who allegedly rammed his car into three police cruisers in 2006 are among those on the State Police Top 10 Most Wanted list.

Troopers released an updated list Tuesday, adding Tremaine Divine Jamison, 28, and Kern Mayers, 40.

Jamison, of New York City, N.Y., and Mayers, of Brooklyn, N.Y., are two among the three people on the Top 10 list being sought for criminal offenses in Luzerne County.

Angel Colon, age unknown, is charged with the rape of a then 10-year-old girl in Hazleton in 2001. Colon previously was charged with taking nude pictures of the girl in 2002.

The Times Leader reported in 2002 that state police learned of the pictures after negatives were developed at a department store in Hazle Township.

State police believe Colon has ties to the Dominican Republic.

Jamison is charged with criminal homicide in the fatal shooting of Devon Brown, 29, on Mark Drive in the Marion Terrace apartment complex on May 31, 2017.

Authorities believe Jamison and Brown were involved in an argument with several other adults after another resident accused the son of Brown’s girlfriend of punching Jamison’s son.

Brown allegedly retrieved a knife from his residence after someone pulled a knife on him. Jamison returned with a handgun and fired a round that struck Brown, according to court records.

The fatal shooting happened during a kindergarten graduation party.

Mayers allegedly sold crack cocaine to undercover troopers on Jan. 4, 2006. When he realized he was going to be arrested, he led police on a 5-mile pursuit through Wilkes-Barre and Plains Township. Mayers allegedly rammed his car into three cruisers, injuring two troopers and an officer, according to Times Leader archives.

“State police and our local law enforcement partners will not stop searching for these dangerous fugitives, whether they’ve been on the run for months or decades,” stated Acting State Police Commissioner Lt. Col. Robert Evanchick in a news release. “Someone knows where these suspects are, and we ask for anyone with information to come forward and help bring them to justice.”

Jamison is described as being 6 feet 1 inch tall, approximately 160 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.

Mayers is 5 feet 9 inches tall, approximately 190 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

Colon is 5 feet 6 inches tall, approximately 170 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of the three men is asked to call 1-800-4-PA-TIPS.
