York police shoot, injure trespassing suspect


YORK, Pa. (WHTM) – State police and the York County District Attorney’s office are investigating a shooting involving a York city police officer.

Two officers attempted to stop a disorderly man who was trespassing at the York Capitol Bus Station, in the area of North Duke and North streets, just before 3 p.m. Monday.

The 31-year-old suspect, who has no fixed address, walked away from the officers but at some point pointed a gun at them, state police said in a news release. One of the officers fired at the suspect and he fled.

When the officers confronted the man again in the area of the York County Convention Center, one of them fired and struck the suspect in the leg. He was taken to a hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

The man’s name was not immediately released. The gun turned out to be a BB gun that looked like a semiautomatic pistol, police said.

No officers were injured.
