York City Police said in a news release that a man was shot in the 200 block of Roosevelt Avenue about 4 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 14.

The department identified the victim as Joshua Rickrode, 20, of the York area. He was shot in the right hip, according to the release.

Police said he was targeted in the shooting. 

On Thursday, the department said he was still in York Hospital in stable condition.
