After being shot in the neck Dec. 27, a York City man was taken to the hospital and then directly to York County Prison.

Tavon Goff, 21, from York City suffered from non-life threatening injuries after being shot just before 8:30 p.m. in the 200 block of South Hartley Street, York City Police said.

Once Goff's condition was confirmed as stable he was transferred to prison of because of an outstanding warrant. Goff, who was originally set to be sentenced on Dec. 22 after pleading guilty to persons not to possess firearms, never showed up for the court date.

Goff was arrested in August 2014 for a felony drug offense when police found a .308-caliber handgun and large amounts of heroin while responding to a call for shots fired, said Deputy Prosecutor Alissa Cardenas.

For that case, Goff on Wednesday was sentenced to 3 to 6 years, with credit for the 280 days he had already served, she said.
