Two more 17-year-olds charged in Clarence shooting

Two more 17-year-olds have been charged in last week's shooting of a 21-year-old man in Clarence, according to the Erie County Sheriff's Office.

The two teens, who were being sought by authorities, were charged with attempted first-degree robbery with a deadly weapon, first-degree reckless endangerment and second-degree assault with intent to cause injury with a weapon, the Sheriff's Office said. One of the teens is from Williamsville and the other is from Lancaster.

Another 17-year-old was already charged in the shooting, which happened last Friday at a housing construction site off Gentwood Drive, authorities have said.

The three male teenagers are accused of luring the 21-year-old to the site, according to investigators. The man was shot in the leg with a .22-caliber rifle, the Sheriff's Office has said.

On Thursday, authorities announced the first 17-year-old who was charged faced new charges after investigators found a shotgun in the bedroom of his Clarence home.

The two teens most recently arrested are being held in the Erie County Holding Center awaiting arraignment in Clarence Town Court.

A spokesman for the Sheriff's Office declined to provide further details about the incident, including who actually fired the shots.
