Danny Clyburn Jr., a former baseball player for the Baltimore Orioles and Tampa Bay Devil Rays, died in a Lancaster shooting early Tuesday morning, police say.
Clyburn, 37, was shot at about 2 a.m. at a home at 618 N. Market Street, Lancaster police said.
An autopsy is scheduled for later today. Lancaster County’s Chief Deputy Coroner Karla Knight Deese would not say where Clyburn was shot or how many times he was hit.
Witnesses told police that a man was arguing with Clyburn just moments before he was shot.
Derrick Lamont Mcilwain, 36, of Lancaster, has been arrested and charged with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime. Mcilwain turned himself in to authorities early Tuesday, police said, and he is in the detention center awaiting a bond hearing.
...After being drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1992, Clyburn played outfielder in the Major League for three seasons - two with Baltimore (1997-98) and one with Tampa Bay (1999) - according to Baseball-Reference.com. Playing in 41 games, he hit four home runs with a batting average of .211.
