SUSPECT IN MURDER TRY IS SILENT AT HEARING

Charles D. Roberson of Syracuse had nothing to say Monday when Chautauqua County Lee Towne Adams asked for a plea to four counts of first-degree attempted murder.

Kevin Laumer, an assistant public defender, entered an innocent plea for Roberson, 31.

Roberson is accused of firing a .22-caliber rifle at four police officers on Oct .22 after a high-speed chase that ended near Ripley. No state troopers or sheriff's deputies were hit but Roberson himself was shot, and has recovered.

The chase started after authorities said Roberson commandeered a car at a North Tonawanda doughnut shop.

Roberson also is a suspect in the fatal shooting of his father near Syracuse. No charges have been filed in Onondaga County. He is being held in lieu of $100,000 cash bail, or $200,000 property bond.
