Frank Gaston and eight other people arrested but why?

Lancaster City police said Monday they arrested eight people on charges related to the “disorder” that erupted outside their station Sunday night after a fatal shooting in which an officer involved a 27-year-old man.


Ricardo Muñoz was killed while attacking an officer with a knife as the officer responded to a call for domestic disturbances, police said. The shooting is being investigated by the county district attorney and police have released a video from the officer’s body camera.


Only two of the defendants in connection with Sunday night’s protest are city residents, police said. Several participants in the rally told PennLive that it started peacefully and stayed that way until outsiders began damaging the property.


The front window of the police station was damaged, as were a nearby post office window and a parked car, police said. They said protesters were sprayed with an irritant when some of them piled up debris on Prince and Chestnut streets and set a dumpster on fire.

“We’ve also been getting calls all morning from downtown business owners when they discovered vandalism damage to their businesses,” police said.
Police said pistols were confiscated from two of the arrested protesters. The charges filed included arson, carrying a firearm without a license, disturbances, disorderly conduct and breaking and entering.

Those arrested are Jamal S. Newman, 24, of Lancaster, listed as homeless and on parole; Barry Jones, 30, of York; Frank Gaston, 43, of Ephrata, also listed as homeless and on parole; Yoshua D. Montague, 23, of York; Matthew Modderman, 31, of Lancaster; Talia Gessner, 18, of York; Kathryn Patterson, 20, of Mercersburg; and Taylor Enterline, 20, of Manheim.

“This office fully supports the right to assemble and protest peacefully, yet the rampant behavior exhibited last night is completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated,” Lancaster County District Attorney Heather Adams said Monday. “Such illegal behavior only takes away those who work with the community to address issues worthy of discussion. Make no mistake, those who cannot peacefully protest and instead resort to violence will be prosecuted and fully responsible ”.

Adams said law enforcement officers “acted professionally to protect the lives of those in potential danger.”
Adams said police used tear gas when objects were thrown at the station and at officers. The county’s SERT team used an armored vehicle to destroy a barricade that protesters erected on West Chestnut Street, he said.
“Acts by the police / SERT prevented further damage to property and vehicles, and protected people in the area from harm,” the district attorney said.
