Venango County family man shot dead on hunting trip fires back – WPXI

VENANGO COUNTY, Pennsylvania – In the woods of Venango County, 29-year-old Jamaican immigrant Peter Spencer was fatally shot. The prosecutor said it was self-defense, but not all parties agree.

“They haven’t arrested anyone despite a bunch of guns, illegal weapons, a bunch of drugs, a corpse with nine bullet holes, and nobody’s arrested for anything,” the statement said. attorney Paul Jubas, who represents Spencer’s family.

The case has drawn national attention since a press conference two weeks ago when the prosecutor said the FBI and the attorney general’s office were investigating Spencer.

Jubas said what was omitted from this statement was that the shooter was also involved in this investigation.

“We have enough evidence in our possession for a probable cause charge, so when there is a crime and an investigation, and someone is murdered in that investigation, the federal government absolutely has jurisdiction over that homicide.” , said Jubas.

While Jubas wouldn’t give many details to protect the case, the prosecutor previously said Spencer and her fiancé were being looked at as part of a ghost gun investigation. Jubas believes the investigation will also end with a homicide charge.

“We have absolute confidence in the progress of this investigation and expect to learn much more,” Jubas said.

We’ve reached out to DA Shawn White for comment in response to Jubas’ press conference, but haven’t heard back.
