Man Pleads Guilty to Punching Another Man,
Firing Shots Into His Pickup
40-year-old Damin Parris of Smethport punched the man after he had been joking around with Parris’ dog. When the man said he was going to leave, Parris yelled, and then fired two shots into the man’s truck. The man ran into the woods. Parris then walked toward a woman’s car and, when she asked him to give her the gun, he started to point it toward her. She grabbed it, drove away in her car and met state police in the parking lot of District Judge Bill Todd’s office.
Parris is scheduled for sentencing on October 30.
