A York City man told police he was walking to a family member's home when he was shot by one of two people he noticed had been following him, York City Police said.

Nahzier Reddick-Davis, 25, of South Belvidere Avenue, suffered a gunshot wound to the foot after being confronted, according to Lt. William Wentz, who supervises the city's detective bureau.

It happened in the 200 block of West Maple Street about 7:40 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7.


"He was walking from his residence to go visit a family member when he noticed he was being followed," Wentz said.

The males who targeted him are described as being about 6 feet tall, he said, and both were wearing dark-colored sweatshirts.

One of the males stepped out into the middle of the street, pointed a gun at Reddick-Davis and told him to stop, according to Wentz.

"He immediately ran," the lieutenant said of the victim.

Reddick-Davis was shot in the foot while running, Wentz said.

He was taken to York Hospital by ambulance for treatment of his wound, which isn't life-threatening, police said.

Wentz said detectives are still trying to determine a motive for the shooting and are looking at whether Reddick-Davis was targeted randomly by would-be robbers.

Police ask that anyone with information contact them.
