Attempted Homicide Arrest

Police in Blair County have arrested a man they say shot a female in the arm last weekend. Logan Township Police say 42-year-old Justin Lefevre shot the victim during an incident in the Greenwood section of Altoona on Sunday Night. By the time Police arrived, Lefevre had fled the scene. Logan Township and Altoona Police Officers arrested Lefevre following a traffic stop Thursday evening, after Police obtained a warrant.

Lefevre faces attempted homicide, robbery, and gun charges. Police say they found an AR-15, a handgun, and drug paraphernalia while executing a Search Warrant at Lefevre’s apartment. Chief David Reese says a Logan Township Officer arrested Lefevre back in May on weapons and drug charges, changing their approach this time around. Reese says investigation into the shooting is ongoing and there may be more arrests. The victim has been released from the hospital.
