WILKES-BARRE — Of the three people police are looking to speak with in connection with last week’s shooting on Sullivan Street, one is a runaway, another is suffering from a gunshot wound, and the other is wanted by probation officials.

All three of them are believed to be together, police say.

Police say Sabrina Hoban, 17, Dupont, was last seen at a Dickson City hotel with Miles Singleton, 20, of Moosic, one of the other people police are looking to interview.

Hoban has been classified by police as a runaway.

Singleton might be endangered because he suffered a gunshot wound to his right leg, police said.

Police said another 17-year-old girl, who is wanted on a juvenile probation violation, is likely with Hoban and Singleton.

Police didn’t say when they believe Singleton was shot, but initial police dispatches to last week’s shooting that wounded two Scranton woman indicated a male had been shot in the leg.

When police issued a statement on the shooting last week, they only indicated two Scranton women, Alanah Sobrinski, 19, and Nichole Santiago, 20, had been shot in the back.

All five were believed to be in the same car when shots rang out on Sullivan Street around 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 12. The car sped away before coming to a stop in the middle of South Main Street near the PSC gas station. Police believe Singleton, Hoban and the other teenager then fled. 

Sobrinski and Santiago were found wounded inside the car.

Santiago’s mother said her daughter is paralyzed from the waist down after getting shot in the spine, while Sobrinski was released from the hospital on Tuesday.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact city detectives at 570-208-4201.
