Judge denies bail in February shooting

A Harrisburg man, who sent police on a man hunt in mid-February, was arraigned Wednesday before Judge Christian Frey. He attempted to kill another man with a firearm at Sixth Avenue and High Street, city police allege.

Ejuan Jamal Cosby, 21, who lived near Almond Street for a time, sat in front of Judge Frey as his charges of attempted homicide, aggravated assault, convicted felon not to possess a firearm, and related offenses.

“While I appreciate that this is not a homicide, I will treat it like one for the purpose of setting bail,” said Judge Frey.

Additionally, court documents say Cosby, who is on parole for charges related to a 2015 armed robbery, is a flight risk and does not have a “good address.”

As such, Judge Frey denied him bail.

Cosby is scheduled to be in court at 9 a.m., on March 19, before Judge Frey.

Allegedly, Cosby fired six shots at Alrashan Jones, hitting him in the leg and foot, during a dispute in the parking lot of the Mini-Mart on Feb. 15, at 1037 High St.

Investigators were able to identify Cosby from a surveillance camera, which led to his arrest.
