The chief said he does not know the extent of the victim's injuries.

It happened about 1 p.m. on Hamilton Avenue, just off the 300 block of North Beaver Street.

The male victim was taken to York Hospital by ambulance and initially was reported to be in serious condition, Kahley said.

"We're still trying to piece everything together," he said. "We have some people we took in (to the station) for questioning."

Kahley said detectives found spent shell casings and a weapon at the crime scene.

Gun found: Officers were seen retrieving a handgun from the area.

Multiple shots were fired, according to police.

Kahley said detectives are still determining whether there was more than one shooter.

He confirmed a man seen running into a nearby home was taken to the police station.

It is not yet known whether he was involved, but it is believed he was at least present at the shooting, according to the chief.

Several witnesses also were being questioned Thursday afternoon, he said.
