Four men are in York County Prison facing multiple charges - including attempted homicide, aggravated assault, and burglary - after an attempted robbery in Chanceford Township.
State Police said in an affidavit of probable cause that the men, who are being held on $500,000 bail, forced their way inside a house in the 600 block of Salem Church Road July 12.
They fired shots at the people inside, but nobody was injured, police said.
In custody are Kamari Hall, 18, of Harrisburg; Caleb Stern, 26, of York City; Zachary David Underwood, 18, of Harrisburg; and Malcolm Rashad Woolfork, 19, of Harrisburg.
Two of the men were stopped by police after the incident, while the others were later arrested in the 200 block of North Franklin Street in Red Lion, according to the affidavit.
Police said the men held rifles or shotguns on resident Derrek Boyd and his girlfriend, Tiffany Vanhart, and friend Dustin Redding and ordered them to lie on the floor.
Redding told police that Boyd struggled with one of the men, taking his shotgun and hiding behind a wall next to a bedroom, charging documents indicate. Another of the men then four shots in that direction, missing, police said.
Police removed four spent casings from the home, according to the affidavit.
The men then returned to a black Honda Civic and drove away.
Hall told police that someone in a white vehicle that had been parked at the house followed and fired at the Civic, according to the affidavit.
A preliminary hearing is set for Aug. 22 at 9:30 a.m. at the office of District Judge John H. Fishel.
