Four people were injured in York City on Saturday during one shooting and two separate stabbings, police said.

All four men are expected to survive their wounds, according to Lt. Troy Bankert, who supervises the city's detective bureau.


A West Manchester Township man was shot in the upper left side of his neck about 1:15 a.m. Saturday inside Pandora's Box, a bar at 466 E. Market St., Bankert said.

Eric M. Martenson, 24, is considered an uncooperative victim; he didn't want to speak with officers, the lieutenant said.

Officers at the scene spoke with a number of witnesses, and more must still be interviewed, according to Bankert.

Detectives have a couple possible suspects to investigate based on what witnesses said, but they don't yet know who shot Martenson or why, Bankert said.

"We have a pretty good idea what happened," he said, but are still confirming witnesses' accounts.

However, investigators have determined Martenson was targeted, according to Bankert.

Fought over woman: Two men suffered stab wounds that they inflicted on each other during a mutual fight over the affections of a woman, police said.

It happened at 10:40 p.m. Saturday at a home in the 200 block of East King Street, where 22-year-old Dominic Mosley lives, according to Bankert.

Tayontre Hannah, 20, of Windsor Township, went to Mosley's home, and the men argued because one was angry over texts the other man was sending to the woman at issue, Bankert said.

Both men were stabbed multiple times, and both collapsed at the scene as officers arrived, according to the lieutenant.

"We rendered first aid," he said, after which the men were rushed to York Hospital by ambulance.

Bankert said Hannah and Mosley both face criminal charges.

Stabbed in arm: York City resident Marvin Vann, 37, is expected to survive a stab wound to his right arm, according to Bankert.

Vann was stabbed near the corner of West Market and South Penn streets at 6:20 p.m. by a man whose name he doesn't know, police said.

The attacker is known to Vann, but not by name, Bankert said.

Vann told officers he doesn't know why he was attacked, police said.

He was taken by ambulance to Memorial Hospital for treatment, the lieutenant said.
