York City Police are looking for two brothers who are facing attempted homicide charges after allegedly shooting a 25-year-old man in his home back in June.

Police have arrest warrants out for Anthony Eugene Faison Jr., 21, and Temile Kahlique Faison, 18, who have been charged by police with attempted homicide, aggravated assault and illegal possession of a firearm, according to criminal dockets. 

Police requested arrest warrants for both brothers on June 12.

Both brothers were still at large as of 2:15 p.m. Thursday, according to Officer Derek Hartman, a spokesperson for York City Police.

York City Police responded to the shooting just before 3 a.m. on June 12 in the 400 block of Park Street.

Upon arrival, they discovered Rashi Tyler, 25, who had sustained gunshot wounds to his torso and arm after he was shot in his home. Tyler was transported to York Hospital where he underwent surgery, charging documents state.

Officers did a search of the houes after the shooting, and discovered used 9mm and .45 casings located in the living room and dining room, police said.

On June 26, police returned to York Hospital to interview Tyler who was still "very weak" from the injuries he sustained, and told police Anthony and Temile Faison shot him, police allege.

Again on July 9, York City Police returned to York Hospital to ask Tyler further questions. During this interview, officers showed Tyler two photo lineups and instructed him to point who had shot at him, according to charging documents. 

Both times, Tyler had pointed to Anthony and Temile Faison with "100%" certainty that the two brothers had shot him, police said.

Both brothers have faced charges before.

In 2019, Temile Faison pleaded guilty to the first-degree felony of aggravated assault and misdemeanor possession of a firearm by a minor for a shooting that happened when he was 16 years old.
