Jermaine N. Reynolds, 23, of 13th Street was arrested Tuesday in Saturday's shooting of a Cleveland Avenue man, Chief of Detectives Capt. Louis F. Curcione said.
Reynolds was charged with first-degree assault and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, Curcione said.
Reynolds is accused of firing five shots from a handgun at Joachim S. Sylvester, 23, striking him twice in the left calf at 2 a.m. Saturday between some houses in the 1800 block of Niagara Avenue.
Sylvester was admitted to Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center and was discharged on Monday, a hospital official said.
