Harrisburg, PA – Today, United States Marshal Martin J. Pane
announced the arrest of Andres Rodriguez, a 23-year old Newmanstown man.
On November 27, 2020, the Lebanon Police Department investigated the
fatal shooting of a man near the intersection of Chapel and South

U.S. Marshal Martin Pane said, “The U.S. Marshals
Service recognizes the importance of bringing those charged with violent
crimes to justice no matter where or how they flee. We give these types
of cases our utmost attention. It is my hope that the family members
will find comfort knowing the alleged attacker will face justice.”
