At the time of the slaying, York City Police recovered a vehicle connected to the homicide. A gold-colored 2015 Ford Fusion with a Pennsylvania license plate of KCF0338 was found by Springettsbury Township Police the same day. It had been reported stolen in May 2022.
Police were pursuing more than one suspect following the shooting.
According to court documents, surveillance video showed four people exiting the Fusion on Philadelphia Street and opening fire on Carr. Three of them went on to pursue Carr down a breezeway while a fourth went back to the car. Nearly 100 bullets were fired at Carr, police said. Jones was later identified as picking up Carr’s cellphone after he was shot.
