Man Charged In Shooting That Left 2 Dead, Woman Paralyzed
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — A 28-year-old man has been arraigned on murder and assault charges for a shooting last month that killed two men and left a woman paralyzed.
Officials say 28-year-old Samuel Shaw was arraigned Monday morning in Rochester City Court, where he pleaded not guilty.
Police say he fired a handgun multiple times into a car where 30-year-old William Gibson and 28-year-old Anthony Robertson were sitting while parked outside a Rite Aid store on June 20. Both Rochester men died.
Officials say a woman in the car was shot in the upper body and is now paralyzed. Her name hasn't been released.
Police believe the victims weren't the intended targets and that Shaw is the only suspect.
Prosecutors say he'll be assigned a lawyer Tuesday. Shaw is due back in court Friday for a preliminary hearing.
