Two more arrested in York street shooting

Police have in custody the two remaining suspects from the March 19 midday shootings on York’s California Street.

The shootings involved three men and sparked a citywide chase and manhunt that concluded with the police chief’s tackling and apprehending one of the alleged shooters.

Early Saturday, police arrested Jarmichael Marquise Lynn, 21, of Rock Hill, on charges of illegal possession of a sawed-off shotgun, said Capt. Brian Trail of the York Police Department.

A few hours later, York Police and York County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested David Junior Hayes, 33, of York, on charges of attempted murder, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, and other weapons violations, Trail said.

Hayes has previous convictions for child endangerment, resisting arrest and failure to stop for a police blue light, State Law Enforcement Division records show.

Both were taken into custody Saturday without incident, Trail said.

A third suspect, Deelgin Jubree Robbins, 24, was arrested March 19 after fleeing from police after the shootout. The convicted felon was found with two handguns after York Police Chief Andy Robinson and Lt. Gary Messer subdued him after he had ditched a pickup he was driving at the time of the incident.

Both suffered minor injuries after Robbins tried to flee and the two officers had to tussle with Robbins to apprehend him.

Robbins is charged with attempted murder, assault on a police officer while resisting arrest, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, and other weapons charges.

All three are being held at the York County Detention Center, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Robbins and Hayes, in trucks traveling in opposite directions on California Street on York’s west side, allegedly shot at each other just after noon March 19, Trail said.

No one was injured, but the shooting happened on a residential street during the middle of the day when some residents of the neighborhood were outside.

Robbins fled in a red truck, then ran after a police officer spotted him near a school. Robinson and Messer found him east of downtown.

Police found the shotgun in the York home where Lynn, one of two people in the blue truck who originally told police he had no idea why Robbins would shoot at him, and Hayes, the other passenger in the blue truck, parked after the incident, according to police reports.

Further investigation found the red truck that Robbins was driving had bullet holes in it, Trail said, and witnesses saw one of the men pull a shotgun from his clothing.
