David F. Pryor III, who turned himself in Wednesday on charges that he shot two men outside a Niagara Falls bar Sunday night, smiled after a judge set bail for him at $50,000 Thursday.
Pryor, 26, had been held without bail since his arrest. Niagara Falls City Court judges were legally unable to set bail because of Pryor's two previous felony convictions. Niagara County Assistant District Attorney Doreen M. Hoffmann said those were for burglary and weapons possession.
Defense attorney Michele G. Bergevin filed a bail request in State Supreme Court. After a closed-door discussion with Bergevin and Hoffmann, Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. set bail at $50,000 cash or $100,000 bond.
Pryor is charged with two counts of first-degree assault against victims Seth O'Harrow and Sam Musolino.
