York City Police are working to piece together the sequence of events that preceded the fatal shooting of a 36-year-old man early Saturday near the intersection of North George and North Streets.

Police believe Danny Steele was at the Belmont Banquet and Entertainment Venue, 39 W. 11th Ave., before he was killed, Police Chief Wes Kahley said.

But police do not yet know if Steele's time at the North York Borough club, formerly Club XS, is connected to his killing, Kahley said.

"We're trying to check into all that," he said.

Kahley said police believe Steele was driving a vehicle when he was shot. The vehicle struck a pole near the intersection.

Steele, who lived on the 100 bock of South Richland Avenue in York, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the York County coroner's office.

No one else was in the car when Steele was discovered, but police are not sure if that means Steele was alone when he was shot, Kahley said.

Police believe Steele was the shooter's intended victim, but Kahley declined to elaborate on why.

"Everything we have so far, it does not look like it was a random shooting," he said. "The public shouldn't worry."

An autopsy will be performed Monday, the coroner's office said.

City police are looking for witnesses and anyone else who might have information, Kahley said.

"It's still pretty early and we're still trying to piece everything together," he said.

The police ask that anyone with information call them at (717) 846-1234 or text through YORKTIPS @ 847411.M
