CHAMBERSBURG — A man who escaped from a Harrisburg halfway house in July has been charged with murdering a Chambersburg teen last week. Calvin Warren James Beam, 18, was shot multiple times in the area of Franklin Street and Martin Avenue around 10:30 pm Sept. 17. He was found in the parking lot behind the Franklin Fire Co., and was taken to Chambersburg Hospital. Beam was later flown to Penn State Hershey Medical Center, where he died early the next morning. Chambersburg police said Steffawn Spriggs, 23, who reportedly fled the area shortly after the murder, was identified as a suspect early in the investigation. They declined to reveal a motive. Spriggs was arrested by US marshals and Pennsylvania state parole agents Sept. 19 in an apartment at Hall Manor in Harrisburg. Spriggs, who has no fixed address, is being held at the state correctional facility at Camp Hill and will be returned to Chambersburg for arraignment. He is charged with first-degree murder, reckless endangerment, firing a gun into an occupied structure and having a gun when prohibited to do so. Police are continuing their investigation into the circumstances leading up to and surrounding the crime. Spriggs was sentenced to 12 to 48 months in state prison in May 2010 after pleading guilty to one charge of conspiracy, engaging in robbery, and inflicting threat or immediate bodily injury in connection to a 2008 incident, according to online court records.
