A parolee was arrested and jailed after he shot a woman in the stomach during a domestic dispute late Monday night, Wyoming County Sheriff’s investigators said. The shooting happened five minutes after a person called 911 to report a violent altercation at the residence.
Jared T. Wrazen, 29, was charged with first-degree assault, second-degree crimimal possession of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child. He was committed to Wyoming County Jail without bail.
The victim, also 29, was shot in the stomach and was treated by EMS from Strykersville Ambulance and Monroe Ambulance. She was then taken by Mercy Flight to Erie County Medical Center. Her name was not released.
Sheriff Gregory Rudolph said the shooting happened at 10:35 p.m., five minutes after the initial call. Deputies were on their way when a second call came in, saying there had been a shooting.
A 63-year-old woman and a 4-year-old child were in the house at the time of the shooting, Rudolph said.
Wrazen has a violent past. He was released from Five Points Correctional Facility on Dec. 16 after serving five years and six months of a seven-year term for assault and possessing methamphetamine.
Wrazen was living in Delevan in 2015 when he was arrested in May after driving his car into two people during a fight at a party.
In December of that year, Wrazen was free on bail when his residence in Delevan was raided by members of the Southern Tier Regional Drug Task Force and Wyoming County Drug Task Force. Police discovered Wrazen was operating a meth lab.
Wrazen is on parole until Sept. 29 and on post-release supervision until Dec. 16, 2026.
