John Tenant, a 94-year-old who fired a shot at a worker inside the Mary Agnes Manor, has been found incompetent to stand trial.
Tenant underwent three forensic evaluations. He pleaded not guilty to a charge of second-degree attempted murder Tuesday before State Supreme Court Justice Christopher J. Burns.
Burns signed an order committing Tenant to a mental health facility for one year. He will be reevaluated on a yearly basis to determine his competency.
The Buffalo man is accused of firing a handgun at a worker inside the Porter Avenue assisted living facility about 9:20 a.m. July 25. Police said that workers and paramedics were trying to convince Tenant to get into an elevator to take him to a psych evaluation when the shooting took place. No one was injured.
