4 wounded in York shooting

Posted: Updated:
YORK, Pa. (WHTM) -

York Police are searching for at least two men suspected of shooting and injuring three young men and a teenage girl.

Police say these injuries were non-life threatening, but according to neighbors, that's as far as the good news goes on this city block.

"They used to fight, now nobody wants to get hurt, everybody wants to kill," said Norma Ortiz from her home on the 600 block of West Princess Street.

Carmen Cruz adds to the conversation in Spanish. In two different languages, both women described the same thing.

"One after another, boom boom boom boom, she hit the floor with her kids, and one of the guys dropped here and dragged himself into to there," said Ortiz.

A bloodied man, unable to walk, pulled himself inside of Cruz's home early Tuesday morning. He, along with three others, had been shot.

After the gunfire stopped, Ortiz says the street went silent.

Above the street, a store front camera was also silent, watching it all. It captured two men firing their rounds from the intersection of Belvedere and West Princess.

Those victims are now recovering. The female is a juvenile; the three male victims have been identified as Daquez Palmer, Que'Sean Brown, and Joseph Ramos. All four are under the age of 20.

Of the streets in York, Princess is known as the most violent. Ortiz says she now fears both for her safety and her investment.

"You can't sell because who is going to buy? You can't rent because who are you going to rent to? What decent family is going to rent here?" she asked.

There is no word on a possible motive.
