York City Police and a U.S. Marshal Task Force on Tuesday arrested an 18-year-old city resident for the shooting of a man on Roosevelt Avenue in the city earlier this month.
Malcolm Mansour Bull of 609 N. Hartley St. was arrested about 12:30 p.m. at 330 Smyser St, according to police.
He is charged with aggravated assault, criminal attempt homicide and firearm violations and was remanded to York County Prison on $150,000 bail.
Bull is accused of shooting Ronald Rhoades, 24, of Marbrook Lane about 12:15 p.m. Nov. 5. He was also wanted for questioning for the homicide of another man the following day.
Shooting: Rhoades and his girlfriend were walking in the area of Roosevelt Avenue and Lincoln Street when Bull, who was across the street, called to him, according to Bull's charging documents.
Rhoades met Bull on the northwest corner of the intersection, and the two realized that they did not know each other.
Bull, who appeared to be agitated, pulled a small revolver from a sweatshirt pocket and shot Rhoades as he turned to run away, documents state.
Rhoades was shot in the back of the leg and suffered a minor gunshot wound to the back of the head, police said.
Questioning: Bull was also wanted for questioning in connection with the slaying of Edward Leon Green.
Someone fatally shot Green, 46, of York as he was running away from them just after 1 a.m. Nov. 6, For now, police are treating it as a carjacking.
The shooting started behind the intersection of Hope Avenue and Green Street, near the 400 block of West Princess Street, police have said.
As police were attempting to track Bull down in order to question him about the Green homicide, they released a photograph of Bull to local media outlets.
An acquaintance of Rhoades saw the photograph on a WGAL News 8 broadcast and told Rhoades it might be the man who shot him, documents state.
Rhoades described what his shooter looked like to the acquaintance.
Rhoades looked at the picture of Bull and positively identified him as the shooter to police, telling investigators that "he would never forget his (Bull's) face," documents state.
