A York City teenager and 20-year-old are wanted in connection with an October shooting that left a man seriously injured, paralyzed from the waist down.

Police are looking for Omar Sharif Jamison-Garcia, 20, of 445 N. Beaver St., and Anthon Deshawn Reece Jr., 17, of 50 S. Highland St., who both face charges of one first-degree felony count each of attempted criminal homicide, aggravated assault and conspiracy to commit aggravated assault, according to charging documents filed Wednesday.

York City Police say the pair got out of a car parked a few vehicles in front of a car Miquez Johnson and another person were sitting in at around 11 p.m. in the 300 block of East King Street, and walked over to Johnson's car, each with a gun in hand.

Jamison-Garcia came up to the driver-side window where Johnson was sitting, and tapped on the window with his gun; Reece went to the passenger's side, according to documents. Johnson's passenger told Johnson to drive away, and he started to do so, at which point both Reece and Jamison-Garcia opened fire, police allege.

Only one bullet hit Johnson, but it very seriously injured him, stricking him in the back and passing through his chest, damaging both of his lungs and paralyzing him from the waist down, according to documents. As emergency personnel took him from the scene, he told a police officer that Omar Garcia had shot him, according to documents.

Anyone with information about their whereabouts can call York City Police at 846-1234.
