Zamir Tyler-Johnson

A man is accused of shooting at a moving vehicle in York City over the weekend, according to authorities.

York City Police said Zamir "Johny Dang" Tyler-Johnson, 21, shot a man's front passenger door the morning of Saturday, Aug. 3.

Tyler-Johnson, of the 200 block of Rockdale Avenue, York City, is charged with two counts of aggravated assault, one count each of carrying a firearm without a license, all of which are felonies, and misdemeanor offenses of propelling a missile into an occupied vehicle, recklessly endangering another person and simple assault.

Police said the victim was driving north in the 800 block of South Pine Street about 9 a.m. Saturday when he spotted Tyler-Johnson walking south on the east sidewalk.

Tyler-Johnson pulled out a gun, then fired it at the front passenger door of the victim's vehicle, a silver 2000 Jeep Cherokee, according to police allegations.

The victim then fled and called 911, court documents state.

An officer spotted Tyler-Johnson in the 400 block of South George Street, and he was found with a gun in his waistband, according to police.

He does not have a permit to carry the handgun, officials said. 

The victim identified Tyler-Johnson as the man who shot his vehicle, according to court documents.

Officer Derek Hartman, the department's spokesman, said Tyler-Johnson and the victim knew each other, but a motive for the shooting has not yet been determined.

Tyler-Johnson was arraigned on the charges Saturday night. He was sent to York County Prison on $100,000 bail. He does not have an attorney listed.

His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Aug. 16 at District Judge Ronald J. Haskell Jr.'s office.
