Two involved in two separate August shootouts indicted in Orleans County Court
Two men who twice exchanged gunfire on separate days in August, resulting in a bullet wound to the leg for one of the men, were indicted last week in Orleans County Court.
Jonathan Jimenez, 23, of Clarendon was arraigned Thursday on charges of first-degree reckless endangerment and two counts of second-degree criminal possession of a loaded firearm, a class C violent felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
Jiminez was twice involved in a shootout with Prinze Z. Wilson, 22, of Albion. The first shooting happened Aug. 8 in the village of Albion. The second happened Aug. 14 on South Main Street and Beaver Alley, resulting in Jimenez getting hit in the leg. The wound was minor and Jimenez was treated at Strong Memorial Hospital and later released.
Wilson was arraigned Friday. He was charged with first-degree criminal use of a firearm, a class B violent felony punishable by up to 25 years in prison. He also is charged with two counts of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and first-degree reckless endangerment.
Both men entered not guilty pleas and are to return to court at a later date. Both men already posted bail in Town Court and remain free pending their next appearance.
