Woman injured in shooting near Lancaster park

LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – Ray Frick said his wife went outside to smoke a cigarette early Sunday morning.

That’s when the couple said they heard gunshots from an apparent drive-by shooting near Rodney Park.

“All the sudden, five shots rang out,” Frick said.

Lancaster police said someone called 911 to report the shooting in the 500 block of Third Street around 3:45 a.m. The officers found shell casings on the ground but no one at the scene.

While police were investigating, they were told a 22-year-old woman showed up at the Lancaster General Hospital emergency room with a gunshot wound to the shoulder.

The victim, a Manheim Township woman, told police she had just left a friend’s house. She believed the shots were fired from an unknown vehicle.

“I heard pow, pow, pow, pow,” Yevette Robinson said.

Police aren’t sure if the victim was targeted. The owner of a gold van said her vehicle was hit by the gunfire.

Police didn’t have any suspects as of Monday afternoon.

Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Lowe at 717-735-3411 or Lancaster Crime Stoppers at 800-322-1913, or text LANCS plus a message to 847411.

Callers do not have to give their names.
