Police: York City man was shot, then shot another man Monday
A York City man is facing charges in a shooting Monday night in which he and another man were injured, according to police.
Luis Daniel Gonzalez, 31, of the 200 block of North Newberry Street, is charged with one felony count each of aggravated assault and illegal possession of a firearm. He had not been arraigned by Tuesday afternoon.
York City Police said Gonzalez was a passenger in a minivan traveling east in the 300 block of West Gay Avenue around 7 p.m. Monday when there was an altercation with people standing in the 200 bock of West Gay Avenue about the van’s speed. Gonzalez said the exchange involved mostly his girlfriend, who was driving.
Gonzalez got out of the vehicle at his home, then walked with his brother back to try and “settle the issue," according to charging documents.
A physical altercation ensued, and a 23-year-old man displayed a 9 mm semi-automatic handgun that he was carrying on his right hip. Police said Gonzalez was shot, causing injury to the right part of his back and left part of his neck.
Gonzalez took the gun, then chased and shot a 27-year-old man, causing serious bodily injury, police said. The victim was being treated at York Hospital on Tuesday. Police interviewed the 23-year-old man, who had a significant amount of physical trauma to his face and head and to his upper extremities, according to charging documents.
One live 9 mm cartridge and one discharged cartridge were located at the scene, but the gun has not been recovered, police said.
Gonzalez pleaded guilty to felony charges twice in 2007 and in 2009, 2010 and 2015, making it illegal for him to possess a firearm.
Six men have now been injured in four separate shootings in a six-day span in York City. Police had not announced any arrests in those previous shootings as of noon Tuesday.
A 37-year-old man was shot early Saturday morning on Grant Street. An 18-year-old man was shot Tuesday in the area of South Hawthorne Street and School Place. Around the same time, another shooting occurred in the 500 block of McKenzie Street involving two men, ages 26 and 20, police said.
All four of those men were listed in stable condition at the time. Police believe all of them were targeted.
