(York) -- A teenager wanted in connection with a Wednesday daytime shooting in York that injured a Baltimore man was arrested Thursday night, but an adult also wanted in the case remains on the loose.

Shyquel R. Folk, 15, of the 800 block of East Market Street in York, was being held at Central Booking on Thursday night for arraignment. He is being charged as an adult, York City Police said.

Matthew L. Hughes Jr., 19, of the 300 block of South Sherman Street, also is wanted in the shooting but remains on the loose.

Folk was picked up by York City Police while authorities were executing a warrant in the 600 block of East Market Street, said Philip Given, chief of staff for York. The warrant stemmed from the shooting.

A gun was found and will be tested to see if it was used in the shooting.

Three other people also were arrested during the Group Violence Intervention law enforcement operation, Given said. York County Probation and the York County Detectives also were involved with the operation.

Police say Folk and Hughes are responsible for the shots fired at a group of people on Wednesday afternoon in the first block of North Duke Street.

Derek Dorsey of Baltimore was shot in the leg. He has been treated and released from York Hospital, police said.

The shooting came up during a homicide trial in court on Thursday morning.

York defense attorney Jennifer Smith is representing Vernon Cox Jr., who is currently on trial in the shooting death of 22-year-old Ryan Small on Jan. 15, 2017. She said the two parties in the shooting allegedly were family members of Cox and Small.

Hughes and Folk are being charged with aggravated assault with a firearm, criminal conspiracy to commit aggravated assault, firearms not to be carried without a license and recklessly endangering another person, according to York City Police.
