A Hornell man is in jail on charges that he helped another man accused of shooting at state troopers during a traffic stop September 27 in Hornellsville.

50-year-old Thomas McCormick was arrested Monday and sent to Steuben County Jail on $5,000 bail.

During the incident, 38-year-old Richard VanGorden of Addison fired several rifle rounds at two state troopers. He was arrested and charged with attempted murder following a police chase and three-hour standoff in Wellsville.
