Another person was shot in York City on Thursday, June 9, according to police.

York City Police have filed charges against a York City man for allegedly shooting a man in the face early Thursday morning.

James "Scotty" Scott McMillan Jr., 28, of 846 Wayne Ave., faces charges of attempted criminal homicide, aggravated assault, carrying a firearm without a license and prohibited possession of a firearm, according to documents.

As of Wednesday afternoon, McMillan had not been arraigned on the charges.

This incident raises the number to eight people shot in York City throughout the day Thursday, with two people shot later that morning and another five shot during three separate incidents that night, police have said.

Police say about 1:45 a.m. Thursday, McMillan shot Rashon Smallwood after the two had an altercation at a York City bar.

Shooting: According to charging documents, York City Police were initially sent to the 500 block of East Philadelphia Street for a shooting victim,  who turned out to be Smallwood. Police say he had a gunshot wound to the left side of his face and was taken to York Hospital.

After Smallwood was taken to the hospital, police determined the shooting actually occurred in the area of East Market Street and State Street. While searching there, police spoke with a woman, who said Smallwood told her McMillan was the shooter, documents state. Spent shell casings were found at the scene, documents state.

Four days later, Smallwood spoke with police. Police say Smallwood said he was in a physical altercation with McMillan while at Pandora's Box, located at 466 E. Market St.

Smallwood told police he was walking from the bar near State Street when McMillan approached him from behind, pointing a handgun at him, documents allege.

According to police, Smallwood said McMillan fired several shots from about 7 yards away before pausing and shooting two more times, hitting Smallwood in the left side of his face.

According to police, McMillan's license to carry permit expired in July 2014, and McMillan previously pleaded guilty to felony drug charges, forbidding him from carrying a handgun.
