A second man has been charged in connection with a fight that led to the Sept. 2 shooting of a York City woman in a parking lot near Route 30.
Xavier Rayshawn Maddox, 24, of 3148 Sunshine Drive in Dover Township was arraigned Thursday on aggravated assault and other charges.
He remains in York County Prison in lieu of $100,000 bail.
Maddox allegedly took part in the brutal beating of one of two men just before Glenniece Banks, 31, who was critically injured when she was shot in the head during a fight at 720 Loucks Road, York City Police said.
Maddox was one of several people wanted for questioning.
"As a result of information that came out of the questioning, he (Maddox) was charged with aggravated assault in the fight preceding the shooting," said Lt. Tim Utley, head of the city's detective bureau.
Police said they have located four of seven other people wanted for questioning. No longer wanted for questioning are Anthony Gilbert, Hakeem Kosh, Pedro Diaz and Eddie Swan. Police are still looking to speak with John McGhee, Meredith Smith, and Qui Swan.
Beating: According to his charging documents, Maddox told police that he drove to the Rutter's Farm Store at 1520 Pennsylvania Ave. with three other people in his car in the early hours of Sept. 2.
Under questioning by police, Maddox said when he arrived at the parking lot, he walked to where the fight was taking place and someone took a swing at him, documents state.
However, a cellphone video showed Maddox and three other men assaulting another man. Maddox allegedly punched the defenseless man, who was lying on the ground, several times as two other men stomped on his head, documents state.
Before he was knocked to the ground, the man did take a swing at Maddox but only after he was attacked by other men, documents state.
A second man was also beaten as a large crowd of more than 150 people stood in the parking lot, documents state.
Both men suffered abrasions all over their bodies and one of them had two teeth knocked out.
While the men suffered non-life-threatening injuries, Utley said the beating was brutal and the two men were greatly outnumbered.
"It wasn't just two guys, it was a crowd," he said.
Utley said additional arrests are likely.
Arrests: Tyree Lamar Eatmon, 24, of 828 W. Poplar St., was arraigned on charges including attempted homicide in relation to the shooting; District Judge Ronald Haskell Jr. set bail at $25,000, which Eatmon posted.
Police allege he was one of at least two people who fired guns during the fight.
Eatmon has since been charged in connection with the fight. The charges include two counts of each of simple assault, aggravated assault and reckless endangerment, according to online court documents.
Police believe the shooting is connected to a drive-by shooting that happened two days later.
Both shootings involved members of the city's Parkway and south-side "crews," or loosely organized neighborhood gangs, according to police.
Three people, including a man who has been charged in the shooting, were injured by bullets in the 100 block of Stevens Avenue about 6:45 p.m. on Sept. 4.
James Dennis Abney Jr., 26, of 236 E. Cottage Place allegedly fired from the back seat of a car during the incident, police said, and was shot in the right shoulder.
Abney, who is Eatmon's half-brother, is charged with attempted homicide, aggravated assault and conspiracy to commit aggravated assault and was free on $100,000 unsecured bail.
However, he was on federal probation after pleading guilty in 2008 to assaulting a federal officer trying to capture him in York City. He is now in York County Prison and cannot get bailed out.
