Man Headed to Prison After Neighbor Dispute

Shrapnel from a gunshot hit and injured a man during a neighbor dispute last October in Steamburg, and now the man who fired the gun will spend one to three years in state prison.

36-year-old James Newell was sentenced Monday in Cattaraugus County Court on charges of attempted reckless endangerment. On October 28 he 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.
