PREVIOUSLY: The man who was shot in York City Wednesday night has died, according to York City Police.

According to the criminal complaint, Shuler parked his sister’s vehicle, a 2015 Hyundai Elantra, to the rear of a residence in the 900 block of W. Locust St.

He allegedly called to his girlfriend, who was inside the residence, to say that he was home.

Shuler’s girlfriend went to the second floor’s rear window and saw a white Ford Escape with a white female driver travel west on Heiges St. before stopping.

At that point, Pough allegedly fired a gun out of the open rear passenger window in the direction of the Elantra.

The Escape was last seen traveling west from the scene.

When Shuler’s girlfriend ran to the rear door of the residence, Shuler allegedly collapsed in her arms and said the name “Reeko”, which is reportedly a nickname that Pough goes by.

Pough is also reportedly the ex-boyfriend of Shuler’s sister and multiple witnesses advised they saw Pough fire the shots.
