Falls shooting suspect gives DNA, gets warning

LOCKPORT – Julius T. Hall, one of two Niagara Falls cousins charged in connection with a June 28 gunfire incident, agreed to give a DNA sample Monday in Niagara County Court.

But Judge Sara Sheldon warned Hall that she will revoke his bail if he is arrested again. Assistant District Attorney Claudette S. Caldwell said Hall, who is free on bail, was arrested recently on misdemeanor charges of striking his girlfriend in violation of a restraining order she obtained against him.

Hall, 30, of 17th Street, and Dyrek E. Hall, 19, of 21st Street, are charged with firing gunshots that struck a house and a car. A handgun that ballistically matched the shell casings found at that scene was located in November at Seneca Niagara Casino. DNA testing showed the genetic material of three unidentified persons on that gun. Dyrek Hall was ordered to give a DNA sample Friday.
