Police: 10-year-old shooting victim OK, shooter still at large

Aug. 6 shooting:  At 3:45 a.m. on Aug. 6, officers were called to 250 S. Penn St. after a 10-year-old boy was shot in the shoulder in the home, York City Police said.

Police said McCowin was having a dispute with family members, went to the back of the home and began shooting at Christina Harris. One shot hit the boy.

Charging documents say the home was occupied at the time by McCowin's father, an adult female and several children.

The boy was treated at York Hospital, and officials at the hospital said on Aug. 8 that he had been released.

In addition to hitting the boy and the house, bullets struck two cars parked nearby, causing more than $500 damage to each, according to the charging documents.

McCowin remains in York County Prison in lieu of $100,000 bail.
