Alfred Pierce, 17, of 222 Koons Ave. was arrested on two counts of reckless endangerment, five counts of menacing, burglary, felony possession of a deadly weapon and criminal use of a firearm after he allegedly fired three shots on Goodyear Avenue Monday afternoon, missing two women by inches.

Genesee Station Officers Reginald Minor and Philip Tisdale were investigating an accident a block away near 417 Koons when they heard three shots about 4:30 p.m.

When they went to investigate, they saw a young man with a gun run from a nearby lot and into 404 Koons, where he pointed the weapon at several persons inside, Tisdale said. The gunman then ran out the front door, Tisdale said.

With Minor in pursuit, the suspect ran into a backyard at 386 Goodyear and aimed a gun at Minor, the officer said. Minor fired two warning shots, and the suspect dropped the gun.

The suspect again tried to run but was captured after a scuffle in the yard at 384 Goodyear, Minor said. Officers recovered a .38-caliber automatic with three live rounds in it, Minor said.

Pierce also was booked on a grand jury indictment warrant for felony possession of a controlled substance and a weapon resulting from his arrest by Minor and Tisdale Nov. 20 at a gatehouse at 172 Fougeron St.

Sunday's incident stemmed from a dispute on Goodyear between Pierce and two 17-year-old cousins, authorities said.
