LANCASTER (AP) - A Philadelphia man shot five people, including a 2-year-old, early Sunday and then turned himself in at Lancaster County Prison less than an hour later, police said.
Mark Q. Galloway, 39, of Philadelphia, allegedly shot his girlfriend, her mother, daughter, 2- year-old grandson, and a family friend, authorities said. He then turned himself in at the prison 40 minutes after the shooting, investigators said.
Police believe the shooting evolved from a dispute between Galloway and his girlfriend, Tameka Rodriguez.
Rodriguez, 35, and her mother, Betty Hogue, 54, were shot multiple times and were in critical condition at Lancaster General Hospital on Sunday night, police said.
Zymir Rodriguez-Rose, 2, his mother, Juanita Rodriguez-Rose, 19, and her boyfriend, Luis Martinez-Lopez, 29, also were shot, police said. All were in stable condition.
"When you shoot somebody more than once, obviously you mean business," Lancaster city police Chief Sam Gatchell said Sunday night. "And this guy wasn't aiming at their legs."
The five were shot outside the front door of a rowhome on Hand Avenue, police said.
Galloway called police while he fled from the scene of the shooting, Gatchell said.
Galloway is charged with four counts of attempted homicide, five counts of aggravated assault and other violations. He is being held at Lancaster County prison after bail was set at $1 million.
