WAYNESBORO, Pa.– Police are searching for suspects after an incident in which shots were fired in a rotary parking lot ended in escape.

At 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Waynesboro Police responded to a call of shots fired in the Rotary parking lot.

These two men approached a lone black male who was standing in the parking lot. The lone male then took off running through the parking lot, darting throughout the parked cars while the other two males pursued.
