MOUNTVILLE, Pa.-- The Lancaster County District Attorney's office has released the name of teenager who was shot and killed in Mountville on Friday.
15-year old Ibram Hanna was shot once inside a home on West Main Street around 10:45 Friday morning. Police have charged a 17-year old friend with the crime, but say at this point it appears to be more a case of criminal reckless endangerment than a premeditated killing. They say the 17-year old stole the gun from a car and the two were handling it before it went off. The older teen is being charged as a juvenile and is name has not been released. The investigation is ongoing. He faces charges including involuntary manslaughter, theft from a vehicle and a felony county of theft of a firearm.
Ibram Hanna was a student at Hempfield High School. He was a football player and about to be a sophomore. In response to his death, counselors will be available to talk to students and staff at the school this week. All are welcome and no appointment is needed.
"We want to be available to students and staff members that are grieving the loss of their fellow student and so all that a student needs to do is come by the Hempfield High School Guidance Office between the hours of 8:00am-3:00pm and we will be happy to sit down with them," said Shannon Zimmerman, Hempfield School District.
