Marcia Murray, 38, of Stevens Avenue, suffered a single gunshot wound to her shoulder area about 8:15 p.m., according to Lt. Troy Bankert, who supervises the city's detective bureau.

She was in stable condition Thursday at York Hospital, he said.

Murray was in the 100 block of Stevens Avenue and got into a verbal argument with three males believed to be either young adults or in their late teens, the lieutenant said.

One of the males pulled out a gun and fired several shots at her, after which all three fled on foot, according to Bankert.

"The suspects were unknown to her, but it was not random," he said of the shooting.

Bankert said police spoke only briefly with Murray at the scene before she was rushed to York Hospital. Detectives must now get more details from her, including what she and the males were arguing about, he said.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call York County Crime Stoppers at (717) 755-TIPS.
