York City Police have released more information about Maurice Rucker, a man arrested Monday for allegedly firing a gun in relation to the double shooting at Norman's Place bar, 354 E. College Ave., last week.
Detectives said Rucker did not fire into the bar and isn't the shooter who injured Quran Brown-Curry, 29, and Norman Turpin, 32.
Rucker is accused of firing a gun at the fleeing attacker who shot Brown-Curry and Turpin, according to police.
Rucker is so far only charged with reckless endangerment, being a convicted felon in illegal possession of a firearm and carrying a firearm without a license. He remains in county prison without bail.
Detectives continue to investigate. The man who shot Brown-Curry and Turpin remains at large, police said.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call city detectives at (717) 849-2219, or call the city's anonymous crime tip line, (717) 849-2204. Or anonymously text a tip to YORKTIPS at 847411.

York City Police on Monday arrested a man they say fired shots in response to a bar shooting last week that left two patrons injured.
Police continue to search for the bar shooter, Detective George Ripley said.
Maurice Rucker, 29, no address provided, is charged with reckless endangerment, unlawful possession of a firearm and carrying a firearm without a license, police said in a news release.
Rucker was denied bail when he was arraigned before District Judge Ronald Haskell because he is a "danger to society" and has multiple prior felony convictions, according to court records.
Police allege Rucker fired shots at the man who shot two patrons inside Norman's Place, 354 E. College Ave., about 12:20 a.m. Thursday.
Recent court documents do not list an attorney for Rucker.
Injured: Quran Brown-Curry and Norman Turpin were sitting at the bar at Norman's Place when the entrance door opened and a man fired three shots from the doorway, police said.
Brown-Curry, 29, of East College Avenue, suffered a single gunshot wound to his back, which exited through his chest.
Ripley said Brown-Curry was still in series but stable condition at York Hospital as of Monday.
"Under the circumstances, he's doing OK," the detective said.
Turpin, 32, of West Jackson Street, was shot in the right arm and also was transported to York Hospital for treatment.
Turpin is not the "Norman" who owns Norman's Place, police said.
Wanted: Police released surveillance pictures of the man believed to be the gunman last week but continue their search for him.
"We're still looking for that man," Ripley said.
