Port Leyden man, teen accused of shooting BBs at teen


PORT LEYDEN — A Port Leyden man and teenager on Sunday were accused of shooting BB guns at another teen at Sullivan’s Trailer Park in the town of Leyden.

Lewis County sheriff’s deputies charged Jeremy A. Reese, 35, Sullivan’s Trailer Park, and a 13-year-old boy with second-degree reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child.

Deputies said Mr. Reese on April 4 missed hitting another 13-year-old boy while the accused teen, whose name was withheld because of his age, shot him in the chest and lower back, causing injury in the latter.

During their investigation, deputies also charged Jared A. Hoffert, 28, of 2778 Route 12, with disorderly conduct, unsafe start and two counts of illegal window tint after they allegedly observed him squeal his truck’s tires and do a doughnut at Walker and Kelpytown roads before entering the trailer park.
