The shooting occurred on York Street, at about 4:00 Saturday morning.
During the weekly police press brief held this morning at the Racoon Street Police Station, Inspector Wilfred Ferrufino, Deputy Commander of Crimes Investigation, said that Davis and Vernon were sitting in his vehicle, which was parked on York Street, talking, when two unknown men came down York Street and one of the men fired at them.
Davis told police that he knows of no reason why shots were fired at them, because he has no enemies and was not involved in a conflict with anyone.
No one has yet been arrested in connection with the shooting.
