YORK, Pa. (WHTM) -

York police have charged a city man and are still looking for a second person in connection with a shooting death early Wednesday in the 200 block of S. Queen Street.

Police said they charged 25-year-old Christopher Schwenk with criminal homicide, and they want to question 35-year-old Eddie Gallon III of York about the murder of 49-year-old Monique Nixon.

Nixon, a resident of East Market Street, was shot in the chest at the intersection with E. Hope Avenue just after 3:30 a.m. and died at York Hospital at around 4:20 a.m., investigators said.

Police do not believe she was the intended target, but rather in the wrong place at the wrong time when an argument between Schwenk and Gallon turned to gunfire.

Anyone with information regarding Gallon's whereabouts is asked to call York police at 717-846-1234 or York County Crime Stoppers at 717-755-TIPS.
