A man shot in the leg following a dispute outside a residence near Penn Park on Monday suffered non-life threatening wounds, York City Police Chief Wes Kahley said.

The victim's name was not immediately released, but he appeared to be in his 20s, Kahley said.

The incident took place at about 12:45 p.m. Monday.

Several York City Police officers and detectives responded to the scene, as did Kahley.

Neighbors and friends of the victim declined to speak on record regarding what they saw and heard.

"We're still piecing it together," Kahley said.

Area residents and passersby milled about, but none were very forthcoming, he said.

"You've got 8,000 people around and nobody saw anything," the chief said.

The shooting comes just two days after a man and a woman were both shot in the area of West College Avenue on Saturday night. Police said those victims were cooperative, however they were unable to tell investigators who shot them.
