YORK, S.C. —
A York man was shot inside his home Sunday night, while two young children were in the next room. York police said 32-year-old Demark Maurice Matthews was shot in the upper body, and was on the bedroom floor when police arrived to find a 13-year-old boy on the phone. The shooting happened just after 10 on Autumn Place in an area of York known as the Valley. The 13-year-old and a toddler did not witness the shooting, but did see the aftermath, police said. "We don't know exactly what the motive was," said York Police Detective Rich Caddell. "We're working on that right now." Caddell also said the public needs to be on alert and concerned about finding 47-year-old Anthony Lord. As Matthews was being carried from the house, he twice named Lord as the man who shot him. Police said they believe Lord is an ex-boyfriend of the woman who Matthews is now living with. In a 911 call obtained by Channel Nine, the woman also told a dispatcher that she knew who shot Matthews. She said she had gone to a store, and came home to find Matthews bleeding on the floor. It all happened only minutes after she had left. "We didn't recover a weapon on the scene, so we believe Lord is still armed and dangerous, and the public should not approach him," Caddell said.Matthews has a criminal record involving several drug arrests, and prison time. Lord has no serious criminal record. Matthews was airlifted to Carolinas Medical Center Sunday night in critical condition. The hospital would not release his condition on Monday afternoon.
