Upon arrival, they found the 30-year-old injured in a domestic dispute at his home from a gunshot wound. The victim was transferred to the hospital and later died. He was identified at Selvin H. McEwan Jr. by the York County Coroner.

Police have not named a suspect but they do believe the shooting was family-related and all who were involved knew each other.

“So when information or when instances like this happen, obviously it does have a ripple effect throughout the neighborhood but what I can assure the public is this is not a random act. We know it was targeted or within the household within its self,” Detective First Class, Andy Baez said.

Police are investigating the incident as a homicide, and ask that anyone with information contacts York City Police by phone or online.
