Two York City men suffered gunshot wounds in separate shootings over the weekend, but neither of them called 911 for help, according to police.

York City Police were called to York Hospital about 5:50 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 12, after Daquan Greer showed up in the emergency department with a gunshot wound.


"He was shot once in the left side," said Lt. Troy Bankert, who supervises the city detective bureau.

Greer, 22, of York City, is expected to survive, the lieutenant said.

After being shot, he called a friend to pick him up and take him to Memorial Hospital, according to Bankert, who said Greer was later transferred to York Hospital to undergo surgery.

Detectives have not yet had a chance to speak with Greer and aren't yet certain where the shooting happened.

Investigators suspect Greer was shot in the area of the 200 block of South Sherman Street, which is Greer's neighborhood, according to Bankert.

A spent shell casing was recovered from the area, he confirmed.

2nd shooting: A second shooting happened in York City about 2 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 13, near the corner of East Philadelphia and Pine streets, according to Bankert.

Dylan Miller, 18, of York City, was sitting in a car when he was shot, police said.

He suffered a gunshot wound to the chest that exited through his shoulder, according to the lieutenant.

"He gave us two different stories as to what occurred," Bankert said. "We believe he was shot by someone in another car, and that he was targeted."



Miller was driven to York Hospital in a private vehicle, and no one called 911 from the shooting scene, Bankert said.

The lieutenant said he can't answer the question of why someone wouldn't call 911 for an ambulance after being shot.

Anyone with information about either shooting is asked to call York City Police at 717-846-1234 or text "Yorktips" and your information to 847-411.
