Curtis Zebley is accused of shooting and critically wounding a Harrisburg man during an altercation early Sunday morning in downtown West Chester.

A 2007 Unionville High graduate is in custody on attempted-homicide charges after a dispute on the streets of downtown West Chester early Sunday morning erupted in gunfire, leaving one man in critical condition.

Curtis Zebley, 25, of Kennett Square, was taken into custody at the scene, said West Chester Police Sgt. Louis DeShullo. He said another West Chester sergeant on patrol in the area heard the shots at 2:17 a.m. and rushed to the unit block of North Church Street.

One 35-year-old victim, who lives in Harrisburg, was rushed to Paoli Hospital, where he was initially listed as critical with multiple gunshot wounds, DeShullo said. A second male victim was treated at Chester County Hospital for injuries sustained during an assault by Zebley, DeShullo said.

Jason Hotchkin, the victim of an early-morning shooting in West Chester, has been upgraded to fair/stable condition at Paoli Hospital.

Law-enforcement sources have identified the shooting victim as Jason Hotchkin, a former professional soccer player turned youth coach. A spokeswoman for Paoli Hospital said Hotchkin’s condition had been upgraded to fair/stable. Hotchkin retired from the Harrisburg City Islanders in April 2012 after leading the team in goals scored during the 2010 season, published reports said. He now works for the Capital Area Soccer Association and was in the area for a soccer event, sources said.

DeShullo said about six people were present when an altercation began, escalating when Zebley pulled out a handgun. He said both victims knew one another but did not know Zebley. He said that all the witnesses have been interviewed, and that Zebley would be arraigned Sunday evening.

According to his Facebook page, Zebley, who attended Delaware County Community College after graduating from Unionville, owns Curt’s Automotive Repair LLC in Toughkenamon.

  1. Kid was a scumbag even back in high school. Pulled a knife on me in the concord mall once. No surprise that he ended up like this.

  2. Should have seen this coming. He also pulled a knife on me as well back in high school. Last time I saw him he tried to fight me at a bar in West Chester I used to work at.

    Enter his name and chester county and you come up with a 2 page rap sheet. Silver lining is that looks like this D-bag is off the streets.

  4. Jason is my friend. This demon of a person, Curtis, should spend the rest of his life in prison. Jason is a kind hearted and humble spirited man.

  5. This guy was the biggest wigger, he went around and acted all cool smoking cigs, bullied me, fornicated my sister and knocked my damn mailbox off. Lock him up and throw away the key!
