York City Police said officers were called to the Hess gas station at the corner of South Queen Street and East College Avenue about 8:35 a.m. Thursday, where they found gunshot victim David Haynes.

Haynes, of York City, was shot at least once in the torso, police said, and was taken to York Hospital. Lt. Troy Bankert, who supervises the department's detective bureau, didn't know Haynes' age, but said he is an adult.

Though White Rose Ambulance tweeted Thursday morning they were transporting a person with a life-threatening gunshot wound, Haynes was listed in stable condition by the afternoon, according to a police news release.

Bankert said Haynes had to undergo surgery to deal with the wound.

The lieutenant said police aren't quite sure where in the area Haynes was shot and don't know what happened leading up to the shooting. Officers have made no arrests and don't have any suspects, he said.

For a little while Thursday morning, South Queen Street from East Princess Street to East College Avenue was blocked by police vehicles and crime-scene tape as investigators photographed the area.

Tasha Williams, who lives on the block, said she heard two gunshots Thursday morning. She said she's heard similar activity in the past, but never this close to her home.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call York City Police at (717) 846-1234.
