York City detectives are looking for a man wanted for questioning in Tuesday's homicide of a homeless man.

Edward Leon Green, 46, suffered multiple gunshot wounds, according to Lt. Tim Utley, who supervises York City's detective bureau.

On Tuesday afternoon, police announced they're looking for Malcolm Bull, 18, of the 600 block of North Hartley Street. He's wanted for questioning.

Detectives aren't yet sure why someone fatally shot Green as he was running away from them early Tuesday morning, but for now are treating it as a carjacking, according to Utley.

He said the shooting started behind the intersection of Hope Avenue and Green Street, near the 400 block of West Princess Street, about 1:10 a.m.

Victim ran: Green got out of his car and started running north toward Princess Street, but was chased by two people, Utley said, at least one of whom was firing a gun.

He was rushed to York Hospital, where he died in surgery, police said.

Green's name wasn't released until about 11 a.m. Tuesday, after officials located Green's family and notified them of his death.

He was pronounced dead at York Hospital at 2:28 a.m., according to York County Deputy Coroner Steve Cosey, who said an autopsy determined Green died of multiple gunshot wounds.

After the victim's two attackers stopped chasing him, they stole his white Toyota Camry.

Car found: Police recovered the car about 8 a.m. Tuesday in the 400 block of West College Avenue, Utley said. Investigators seized it and are processing it for evidence, he said.

At this point investigators consider the incident a carjacking that turned fatal, but it's still too early in the investigation to be sure, according to Utley.

Utley confirmed Green was living in his car.
