Two men shot early Thursday morning in York City are expected to survive, according to city Police Chief Wes Kahley.

Officers were called to the 800 block of West Poplar Street about 1:15 a.m., according to a news release.

At the scene they found Ernest Crosby, 25, who lives in the block. He had been shot in the left foot, according to police, and was taken to York Hospital for treatment.

On Thursday afternoon, Kahley said investigators were still trying to correctly identify the second gunshot victim, who was shot four times. The man suffered wounds to his forearm, back, groin and buttocks, according to police.

Both men are expected to survive, the chief said.

Crosby told officers he and the second man were shot during a home invasion, according to police.

Kahley said the investigation is ongoing into the circumstances of the gunfire.

"We're still talking to people," he said, "Evidence suggests there may have been more than one (shooter)."

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call York City Police at 717-846-1234, or anonymously text "yorktips" and then your tip to 847411.
