Shrapnel Hit Man in Neighbor Dispute
Sheriff’s deputies say 36-year-old James Newell and his 53-year-old neighbor were arguing on Route 394 when he fired a round from his rifle into concrete, causing shrapnel to hit the neighbor.
The neighbor was flown to ECMC in Buffalo, where he was treated and released.
Newell is charged with reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon, because he is a convicted felon and prohibited from having a weapon. He was sent to jail on $10,000 bail.
