A woman was taken to the hospital after she was shot Wednesday night in York City, according to police.

York City Police responded to reports of a shooting in the 100 block of Stevens Avenue around 8:15 p.m.

They found a woman who'd been shot where the road bends away from the north side of Codorus Creek, which it borders in that area; she was taken to York Hospital, according to officers on the scene.

No information about the woman's identity, age or condition was available.

As they got ready to clear the scene shortly before 9 p.m., officers said no one had been arrested for the shooting.

Witness: Randy Graham, who lives just down the block from the shooting, said he heard it happen. He said he heard two shots rang out — "bang, bang," he said. Those were followed followed by three more shots.

"That's when she got hit," he said.

He said he came outside and offered to help give the woman a ride to the hospital, but she ended up going by ambulance.

He said it seemed she was hit once around the shoulder area.

Graham said the woman had been riding in a car with two other people when they got into an argument with two men who were on foot. One of those two men took out a gun and fired the shots, he said.

York City Police continue to investigate. Anyone with information is encouraged to call 846-1234 or text "yorktips" and then the tip to 847411, the city's anonymous tip line.
