Man shot near York City's McKinley K-8, students not in school at the time
McKinley K-8 School staff members had to shelter in place Wednesday after someone was shot nearby, York City School District's spokesperson said.
Spokesperson ShaiQuana Mitchell told The York Dispatch that no intruders got into the school and that everyone inside was safe.
Because it was Wellness Wednesday in the district, students were learning from home, meaning there were no students in the building when the shooting happened outside, she said.
The school's shelter-in-place order was lifted at 2 p.m., Mitchell said.
Not life-threatening: A 35-year-old man was shot at 12:28 p.m. while in Dalton Alley and was transported by ambulance to a local hospital, according to York City Police Sgt. Daniel Lentz. The alley is directly across from McKinley K-8
The victim's wound was not considered life-threatening, the sergeant said.
At this point, police have no information to suggest the shooting had anything to do with the school, according to Lentz.
Police and an ambulance were called to the 600 block of Manor Street for the shooting victim, according to York County 911.
Tips sought: Anyone with information about the shooting is urged to contact York City Police. Tipsters can remain anonymous, according to Lentz.
