Pair charged in Lancaster shooting

LANCASTER — Bond was denied Saturday for a Lancaster man and woman connected to the Friday night shooting of two people, including a retired city of Lancaster police officer.

Ray Knight was trying to help the victims of a car accident when he was shot, according to our news partner wsoctv.com. The retired officer's injuries did not appear to be life threatening, according to a press release issued Saturday from Tom Holland, staff attorney with the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office.

Information about the identity and condition of the other was not available.

Charles Walker Raffaldt Jr., 23, of 15840 Highway 200 and Stephanie Denise Myers, 21, of 1418 McIlwain Road each face kidnapping charges, an official from the Lancaster County Detention Center said.

However, the release does not state whom Raffaldt and Myers allegedly kidnapped. More charges are pending against Raffaldt, the detention center official said.

Details about the shootings remained sketchy throughout Saturday.

Around 8 p.m. Friday, police were called to Old Linwood Circle regarding a car accident, the release states.

That call was followed by several others regarding two shootings, which authorities linked to the car accident, according to the report.

Lancaster officials plan to release more information about the shootings on Monday, the release states.

Myers and Raffaldt remained in custody Saturday night at Lancaster County Detention Center.
