Coroner called to late-night shooting in York City


YORK, Pa. (WHTM) — Police spent nearly seven hours at the scene of a shooting. York County dispatchers say officers were called to the 300 block of Albermarle Street at around 11:45 p.m. Tuesday.

The York County Coroner’s Office left the scene at around 6 a.m. Wednesday.

Dispatchers say there was a large amount of police activity overnight. 

The coroner’s office and officers at the scene say additional information will be released later Wednesday.

York’s police commissioner recently told abc27News in an effort to combat violence, the department has had officers spend more time walking their beats and has been using data to try to respond to issues before they become deadly.

The city’s seventh fatal shooting of the year happened Sunday; a 33-year-old man was shot and killed just over two miles away.

Community leaders have been trying to address the shootings as well.

In early June, the House of Reconciliation Church held its 7th Annual Stop the Violence and Community Resource Expo at Renaissance Park which was designed to bring unity in the region.
