Police seek two after woman gunned down in York City

Michael Anthony Adams, 47.

Police are seeking two people in connection with Wednesday's shooting death of a 27-year-old woman in York City.

Jasmine Barnes, of the 600 block of North Pershing Avenue, died at the scene, according to a York County Coroner's Office news release. 

Police said the shooting happened about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday in the 600 block of East Philadelphia Street after a reported altercation at a residence, according to the release.

Barnes had been shot in the torso and died from her gunshot wounds, according to charging documents. Police found multiple shell casings at the scene.

York City Police need help locating a man and woman connected to the homicide, according to a department news release.

Brittany Lasha Calloway, 31.

Michael Anthony Adams, 47, of Baltimore, is wanted for hindering apprehension and concealing or destroying evidence, police said.

"(Witnesses) advised that this defendant was engaged in physical fight with several of the victim's friends while the victim was flighting with an unknown suspect," a probable cause affidavit states. "The victim and the unknown suspect each pulled out handguns and fired at each other."

Police said the unidentified suspect was shot in the stomach area and couldn't walk, so Adams helped carry that person away. 

The suspect told Adams to pick up Barnes' handgun before both fled the scene, according to charging documents. 

Investigators also want to question Brittany Lasha Calloway, 31, of York, according to the news release.

An autopsy conducted Saturday at Lehigh Valley Hospital determined that Barnes died of multiple gunshot wounds, and her death was ruled a homicide, according to a report from the York County Coroner's Office.

This was the second homicide in York County this week. An 18-year-old man also died after a shooting on Monday in York City.
