Teen charged in Clarence shooting arrested again after police find shotgun in bedroom

The 17-year-old charged with shooting a man last Friday in Clarence was arrested again this week after authorities found a shotgun in his bedroom, the Erie County Sheriff's Office said.

Sheriff's officials charged the Clarence teen after the discovery was made Wednesday afternoon. The gun possession violated an order of protection issued by a Clarence Town Court justice, the Sheriff's Office said.

The teen, whose name has not been released by the Sheriff's Office, faces two new misdemeanor charges of criminal possession of a weapon with intent to use and failure to obey a mandate.

The teen lured a 21-year-old man to a housing construction site off Gentwood Drive and shot him in the calf with a .22-caliber rifle during an attempted robbery, according to authorities. Investigators are still looking for two other suspects, one of whom displayed a handgun during the attempted robbery but whom authorities said they did not consider a danger to the public.

The teen, who is being held in the Erie County Holding Center, had bail set for the new charges at $25,000 cash or $50,000 bond. The bail amounts on the original charges were increased to $150,000 cash or $300,000 bond, the Sheriff's Office said.
