One man dead after York City shooting


An early morning shooting in York City left one man dead and another man in critical condition, according to authorities.

York City Police said in a news release two men were found shot multiple times in the 100 block of North Sherman Street about 1:50 a.m. Wednesday, July 31.

They were immediately taken to York Hospital, where one succumbed to his injuries.

York County Coroner Pam Gay identified the man killed as Moses Coleman, 39, of York City.

Officer Derek Hartman, the York City Police spokesman, said the two men were walking to a nearby store when they were shot. 

The department said it is believed the two were targeted in the shooting, but at this point a motive is not known. 

Hartman said investigators do not know if more than one shooter was involved. 

The other man was in critical condition Wednesday afternoon, according to police. His name had not been released as of about 1 p.m. Wednesday. 

Gay said Coleman died at the hospital about 4:50 a.m.

Coleman's autopsy is scheduled for Thursday at Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown.
