“I heard rapid gun fire”: One killed, two injured in York City shooting


YORK, Pa. (WHTM) — Montika Smith was in her York City home when she heard the noise.

“I was at the computer doing some work late at night and I heard this rapid gunfire and it went on for a long time. It was at least 20 shots, maybe 30. It was horrible,” said Smith.

According to York City Police, the shooting took place around 12:25 a.m. Friday at North George Street and Parkway Blvd. When police arrived at the scene they found three men with gunshot wounds. A 36 year- old male died at York Hospital. A 39-year-old male and a 24-year-old male were treated and expected to survive.

Since April 27th, 10 people have been shot in 7 different incidents in York City. Two people have died.

“It is heartbreaking,” said Smith. “I don’t understand why there is no remorse, no compassion, no value of life. It is just really sad.”
