Investigators told The Reading Eagle (https://bit.ly/1cZOnDE ) that he turned himself in at City Hall shortly before 5 a.m. Wednesday, about two hours after the shootings

Gunfire was reported shortly before 3 a.m. Wednesday, and a man and woman were found dead on the sidewalk. Another man found nearby was taken to Reading Hospital.

A listed number for Spencer couldn’t be found Wednesday and it was unclear whether he had an attorney who could comment on the charges.
