2 shot after argument at York restaurant


YORK, Pa. (WHTM) – Police say a shooting that left one man dead and another injured early Sunday was the result of an argument that started inside a restaurant.

Jose Nunez-Cruz, 24, of York, sustained at least one gunshot wound to the head and died in the parking lot of 3rd Base Restaurant, at 513 North George Street, police said in a news release Monday.

A 30-year-old York man sustained at least one gunshot to the abdomen and was taken to a hospital in a private vehicle. He is still listed in critical condition, police said.

Both victims were targeted, police said. No suspects or arrests were announced.

Several neighbors were on their front porches across the street from the restaurant when the shots were fired. One man said a bullet passed inches over his head and shattered the window behind him.

“We’ve never really had any problems,” 3rd Base owner Theodore Koutsokostas said. “Once in a while, you have an issue like any business does, but this is a total shock.”

Anyone with information should call the York police tip line at 717-849-2204 or York County Crime Stoppers at 755TIPS.
