York City man accused in Labor Day shooting
A York City man is accused of a Labor Day shooting that wounded a teenager, according to officials.
On Wednesday, Sept. 5, York City Police filed charges for Infinite Ka Corbett, 18, in the Sept. 3 shooting in the 600 block of West King Street. Police said he lives in the 600 block of West King Street as well.
Corbett, who as of Sunday, Sept. 9, had not been arraigned, faces charges of attempted homicide, aggravated assault, carrying a firearm without a license and two counts of recklessly endangering another person.
Shooting: Police say the teen was shot at about 1:30 p.m. on Labor Day. Officials found him in the 100 block of South Belvidere Avenue with gunshot wounds to his hand, shoulder and torso, according to court documents.
Officers searched the 600 block of West King Street and found shell casings and a loaded 9 mm semi-automatic pistol on the sidewalk.
Charging documents indicate that a man in a blue hoodie pulled a handgun from his pocket and fired it at the teen, who was on the sidewalk.
The shooter, later identified as Corbett, ducked behind a parked vehicle and starting shooting again, and the victim pulled his own gun out of his waistband but ended up dropping it on the sidewalk before he fled, according to police.
Video surveillance from nearby showed a person in a blue hoodie walking to the area just before the shooting, charging documents state.
Police say Detective Andy Baez recognized Corbett in the footage as someone he had dealings with a few weeks before. Corbett was a victim in a quadruple shooting in late July.
Corbett, who is 18, is not allowed to possess a concealed handgun, charging documents state.
Injuries: According to police, the victim suffered a gunshot wound to the right shoulder, and hand, and a bullet was lodged in his liver.
Bullet fragments were also found in the right chest wall and arm, and he suffered fractures to his arm and a finger, charging documents state.
Lt. Gene Fells, who supervises the detective bureau, said that the victim is expected to survive.
Prior shooting: Corbett was one of four victims in a shooting in late July, according to police.
York City Police say Corbett was shot in the chest about 12:15 a.m. July 29 in the first block of East Maple Street.
Anthony Lopez, 23, was shot in the chest and arm; Fernando Maysonet, 22, was shot in the hand; and a 16-year-old boy was shot in the abdomen and hand, according to police.
Investigators believe they were targeted, police have said.
Fells said investigators aren't sure if the shootings are related.
"We haven't really interviewed him and gotten that far to be able to say they're connected," he said.
Anyone with information on Monday's shooting or Corbett's whereabouts can text "Yorktips" and their information to 847-411.
The texting service is anonymous and allows tipsters to carry on texting conversations with police without police knowing their identities, according to police.
