On Thursday, October 7th, 2021 at approximately 8:23am, a York City police officer was responding to an unrelated call for service. While enroute to the call, this officer came upon a shooting in progress in the 800 block E. King St. Observing this exchange of gunfire, the officer intervened, returning fire that was directed towards one of the shooters who subsequently fled the scene.
