After a relatively quiet summer, the city of York seems to be getting more violent; with two murders in the same day and just feet apart.

Walter Savage, who lives on Boundary Avenue says, "I don't want my son to get shot by a random bullet that's not meant for him, that's the only thing I worry about."

Savage has reason to worry, he lives right in the middle of where the two murders took place. The first, around 7:00 Tuesday morning and the other at 9:45 that night.

Savage says, "the other morning I got up, they killed somebody at the corner, I came outside and they had all the police on the corner, I was like, wow."

Police have arrested 55 year old Shannon Mayo, Sr. for that crime, that happened at the intersection of South Queen Street & Boundary Avenue. They say he shot 34 year old Donnell McIntyre between 4 to 10 times because he thought McIntyre once robbed him.

York City Police Commissioner Mark Whitman says, "somebody that fires that many shots, one would question the need for that many shots."

The other shooting, strangely, was initially reported as a car crash.

45 year old John Houseman, Jr. of Red Lion crashed his car into a row of hedges, on Boundary Avenue near Wilson Court. Folks in the area tried him help him, but had no idea he'd been shot.

Neighbor Christopher Smith says, "I went over, try to ask him questions like what's his name to try to keep him alive you know.. he was like, oh, I'm hurt, I'm hurt, all he was saying, then he passed out."

Houseman died from a single gunshot wound to the torso, but where and when he was hit is still a mystery.

Savage says, "I figure he probably got shot somewhere else and just ended up here, but to have it happen in your backyard is sad and scary."

Again, Commissioner Whitman says there is no evidence to connect these shootings. He calls it a coincidence, but also says because of the violence, people in the area will see more of a police presence.
