JAMESTOWN – A 34-year-old man suspected of firing a gun outside a city bar was taken into custody this morning without incident, police reported.
Officers were dispatched to the Roadhouse Bar, on East Second Street, at about 11:50 p.m. Wednesday after someone reported a man with a gun. Police determined that eight shots had been fired in a parking lot on the east side of the business.
After obtaining a search warrant, officers – including members of the department’s SWAT unit – went to the Curtis Street home of suspected gunman Zachiel Fields. The suspect wasn’t there, but police reported they found the weapon they believe was fired outside the bar.
Fields was taken into custody at about 9 a.m. today in a Utica Street apartment where he had been hiding, police said. Charged with felony counts of criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment, he’s in the city lockup awaiting arraignment.
