UPDATE: A 20-year-old man was shot Friday night in the area of Moyallen and Grove streets in Wilkes-Barre.


A Luzerne County 911 supervisor said the shooting was reported at 8:08 p.m. and the victim was being taken to a hospital by ambulance. Police are still investigating and provided no information.


According to Tierrel Turner, 26, of Wilkes-Barre, his brother, Brad Coleman, 20, was shot by a man during an argument outside the home of the mother of Turner’s children.


Turner said he came to the residence to get his children because their mother had been arrested earlier in the day for allegedly violating a protection order he had filed against her.


Turner and another witness, Latisha Aiken, who works with Turner at his hair salon, said Turner’s mother and sister were also at the scene. They said a woman and a man who are friends of the mother of Turner’s children got out of a car, and the woman began arguing with Coleman’s sister and mother.


The man who accompanied the woman intervened in the fight, and that’s when Coleman became involved, saying, “You’re not touching my mother,” to the man and the two began fighting, Aiken said.


“After they started fighting, (the man with whom Coleman was fighting) pulled out his gun and just shot him. And they stood there. I seen the gun, I seen everything. I’m standing over him like, what the hell. Everybody ran, I’m trying to see if he’s OK. They jumped in a white Impala and left,” Aiken said.


Aiken said the alleged shooter and the woman with him were at Turner’s salon earlier in the day with the mother of Turner’s children.


Turner said he had called police because he had a protection order against the mother of his children. He was upset because it took a second call before police arrived, he said.


Witnesses said the shooter and the woman who arrived at the home fled in a white Chevrolet Impala driven by a second woman who arrived separately during the altercation.
