Tavon Goff was shot in the neck around 8:30 p.m. in the 200 block of South Hartley Street, according to Lt. Troy Bankert of the York City Police Department.

"It wasn't life-threatening from the beginning," Bankert said.

Bankert said Goff is in stable condition and has been sent to York County Prison because of an outstanding warrant.

He said they do not have any suspects in custody at this time.

Saturday shooting: Goff's was the second shooting in York City over the weekend.

On Saturday, an adult woman was shot in buttocks in the early morning, according to Bankert.

She was shot at Pine and Prospect streets, he said.

Bankert said she has been uncooperative, and police are still investigating.

Recent shootings: This is the latest in a string of shootings that have happened in the city over the past few weeks. Amy Rodrick, who lives around the corner from where the shooting occurred, was at the scene as police were investigating. Rodrick, who said she wasn't at the scene of the shooting, has been hearing more gunshots lately.

She said she and her family were just pulling up as police arrived.

"It's just sickening," she said. "People got kids around here."

She said she's worried that a shot might hit a child.

Rodrick, who lives with her husband and three children nearby, said they have gotten used to hearing gunshots lately.

"We have learned to tell the difference between fireworks and a gun," she said.

She said they hear shots near their house frequently.

"Now it's getting a little too close to home," she said.
