A West York man shot in the foot earlier this month on Dewey Street in the borough is both a victim and a suspect in the case, according to police.

Shavar Pough, 23, of the 1000 bock of West Poplar Street, fired at a person who was shooting at him about 9:30 p.m. Feb. 8, West York Police said.

He was charged with being a felon in illegal possession of a firearm and carrying a firearm without a license, both felonies, as well as two misdemeanor counts of reckless endangerment. He was released from York County Prison on Thursday, Feb. 13, after posting $25,000 bail.

In a separate case, Pough is charged with felony drug dealing, simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, both misdemeanors.

Those charges were filed after investigators executed a search warrant on his home Wednesday, Feb. 12, according to charging documents.

His preliminary hearing is set for Feb. 26 in both cases before District Judge Jennifer Clancy.

West York Police are trying to track down Emahn Weedon, 18, of no fixed address, who was with Pough at the time of the shooting.

Once arrested, Weedon will be charged with the felonies of being a felon in illegal firearm possession, receiving stolen property and carrying a firearm without a license, according to court documents.

Police said Weedon is considered to be armed and dangerous. If you see him or know of his whereabouts, police said don't confront him and call 911 immediately.

Police said Pough suffered a gunshot wound to the foot and was treated at York Hospital.
