West York Police apprehend shooting suspects

York, PA

On February 24, 2019 West York Borough Police said there was a shooting incident with multiple shots fired in the “Avenues” Section of York City. 

Upon investigation, a radio broadcast was transmitted to all units describing a vehicle that was to be involved in the shooting. At 11:40 p.m., while patrolling the Borough streets police say Lt. Kahley observed the vehicle described to be travelling in West York on Market Street police suspected may have been involved. 

Lt. Kahley, assisted by Officer Jon Hehnly conducted a “Felony Stop” on the vehicle according to authorities.  At that point officers identified that this was the vehicle due to multiple gunshot holes in it – despite the fact that the driver initially stated that he “Didn’t know anything about any shootings.”

York City Police responded & impounded the vehicle which was found to contain additional evidence. The driver was subject to further investigation by York City, and was charged by our agency for Driving Without a License.
