A city man has been indicted in connection with a 2013 shooting that left a man dead outside of a Chambersburg landmark.

Brandon Nance, 26, was gunned down outside of Italian People’s Bakery on Butler Street around 12:20 p.m. on Aug. 29, 2013.

Prosecutors say 20-year-old Dante Alexander and a yet-to-be-apprehended second suspect shot Nance several times before he collapsed in front of the bakery, and then pumped more bullets into him as he laid on the ground.

Prosecutors say police found sixteen 40-caliber shell casings along Butler Street, and the shooting was captured on surveillance video.

Alexander was arrested in Virginia in May of last year and charged with murder and related weapons offenses in connection with Nance’s death. He was indicted on those charges last month and remains in the Mercer County Correction Center on $1 million bail.
