According to police, a "disagreement" between Naylor-Wilson and Hernandez led to the shooting after Naylor-Wilson accompanied Hernandez and his friends to a party early Sunday morning.

After they left the party, police say, Naylor-Wilson fired at the group of friends and fatally shot Hernandez.

Hernandez was shot in the back just after 4 a.m. Sunday in the 500 block of West Philadelphia Street, according to police.

York City Police responded to the scene at 4:08 a.m. Sunday, but Hernandez was already on his way to York Hospital by private vehicle when officers arrived, according to the release.

Allegations: According to court documents, Hernandez and three other people were headed to a party on West Philadelphia Street when they ran into a man they knew as "Slim."

Slim, later identified as Matthew Bell, was with another man, whom he referred to as his "bro," whom police later identified as Naylor-Wilson.

The group asked Bell if he wanted to go to the party, but he declined, and police say Naylor-Wilson left Bell and went with the group to the party. They arrived at the party about 3 a.m., and about 4 a.m. the group decided to leave.

As they went back to their car, Naylor-Wilson, who was unknown to the group, yelled out to them, documents state.

The group stopped and and waited while Naylor-Wilson walked up to them, police said.

Naylor-Wilson pointed a handgun at Hernandez and began firing at them, court documents allege. The group fled, and police say Naylor-Wilson gave chase, firing at least two more shots.

Lt. Troy Bankert, who supervises the York City detective bureau, said a disagreement led to the fatal shooting.

“It was a disagreement of some sort, but we still don’t know what it was," he said Thursday afternoon.

Hernandez eventually collapsed on a fence near Hartley Street, and the group took him to York Hospital, according to police.

Hernandez died shortly after 6 a.m following unsuccessful emergency surgery, according to the York County Coroner's Office.

An autopsy Monday showed Hernandez died from a gunshot wound to the chest, according to the coroner's office.

Investigation: Police spoke with Bell on Tuesday, and he said he was walking with another man who stays at his residence frequently. Bell lives with two other people, documents state.

He told police that he met Hernandez and his friends and declined to go to the party with them, police said.

He said the person who was with him left with the group, documents state. At the time, Bell denied knowing the name of the person who left with them.

On Wednesday, investigators re-interviewed two witnesses. As they were driving them home, the witnesses saw someone in the area of West College Avenue and South West Street and simultaneously identified that person as the man who shot Hernandez, police said.

Detectives positioned themselves to watch Naylor-Wilson, and police say he was going back into Bell's residence in the 200 block of South West Street.

Naylor-Wilson was taken into custody by police, and Bell eventually admitted being with him that night, documents state. The two other residents of the home also identified Naylor-Wilson, police said.

Hernandez's death is the 17th homicide in York County in 2017, according to the coroner's office, which noted York County law-enforcement agencies recorded 17 homicides in all of 2016.

He pleaded guilty in June 2015 to carrying a firearm without a license and was sentenced to one to two years in prison, with credit for time served.

Court records show he also pleaded guilty in 2015 to aggravated assault in Perry County. He was sentenced to one to two years in prison for that as well.
