[ARCHIVED] Lancaster Teen Admits to Firing Shots Near Elementary School

Dylan Quinones

A Lancaster man admitted to firing several shots near a Lancaster Township school last year, during a dispute with his ex-girlfriend.

Dylan B. Quinones, 19, first tried to block the female’s vehicle on Dec. 27, then threatened her and fired several shots in the air, according to Manheim Township police.

On Wednesday in Lancaster County Court, Quinones pleaded guilty to a felony firearms charge and a misdemeanor count of reckless endangerment, according to Assistant District Attorney Andrew LeFever.

Police found six spent shell casings at East Orange Street and Ranck Avenue, near Burrowes Elementary School.

Witnesses reported that Quinones, while in his vehicle, confronted the female and tried to prevent her from driving. He then reached out his vehicle window and fired shots into the air, the witnesses reported.

No one was struck by the gunfire.

Quinones is prohibited from possessing a firearm because he is under 21.

County President Judge Dennis Reinaker, who accepted the plea, will order sentence after a background check is completed in a couple months.

Quinones is at Lancaster County Prison on $250,000 bail.

Manheim Township police Detective Nicholas Fritz filed charges.
