Niagara Falls man takes plea in drive-by shooting

Jha'mere Mulkey, who drove a car from which two other men allegedly shot up a Niagara Falls home last year, pleaded guilty Monday in Niagara County Court.

Mulkey, 19, of Falls Street, faces seven years in prison when sentenced Sept. 11. Mulkey admitted to a reduced charge of attempted second-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Judge Matthew J. Murphy III freed Mulkey from jail Friday and directed the Probation Department to enforce a personal curfew and give Mulkey an ankle monitor.

Charges remain pending against one of the alleged gunmen, Vincent K. Smith, who is accused of firing 14 or 15 rounds into a house on 22nd Street Dec. 18. Assistant District Attorney Doreen M. Hoffmann said the house was not where Smith's alleged target lived. The second gunman has not been apprehended.
