A man sought by York County authorities for attempted murder turned himself in over the weekend, according to jail records.
Anthony Christopher Shannon Jr., 22, was arrested Saturday and charged with two counts each of attempted murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime, according to jail records. He remained in the Moss Justice Center on Monday without bond.
A York police spokesman said Shannon, who is also known as “Ant” and was wanted in connection with two shootings, turned himself in Saturday.
Shannon is accused in the July 4 shooting of a male acquaintance in the 100 block of Hickory Lane in York, authorities say. Shannon fled before police arrived, but officials say the incident was witnessed by a large group of people.
