Massena shooting suspects arraigned in St. Lawrence County Court


CANTON — Two Massena residents who are under indictment in connection with an alleged shooting attempt last month were arraigned Wednesday morning in St. Lawrence County Court.

Devian J. Fletcher, 19, stands accused of shooting at a car carrying Patrick R. Lloyd and Miranda M. Green on March 27 in Massena. An associate, Katelynn J. Javier, 21, was indicted on charges of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, tampering with physical evidence and third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Ms. Javier was released under probation supervision Wednesday, while Mr. Fletcher was sent back to the county jail, Canton, without bail pending further proceedings.

Mr. Lloyd and Ms. Green are facing charges in the alleged attempted abduction Feb. 16 of Catherine A. Berry, 17, of 66 Liberty Ave., who Mr. Fletcher said was a friend.

Indictment papers listed Mr. Fletcher’s address as 66 Liberty Ave., the same as Ms. Berry. Police surrounded that property during a standoff following the March 27 incident.

Previous documents also listed Ms. Javier as a resident of 66 Liberty Ave., although the grand jury report indicated that she lives at 72 Maple St.

The grand jury accused Mr. Fletcher of “circumstances evincing a depraved indifference to human life” by firing a .22 caliber pistol at a car driven by Mr. Lloyd. Ms. Green, who is pregnant, was cut by flying glass, the only reported injury.

Ms. Javier is accused of trying to hide the gun in the attic of 72 Maple St. Investigators also accuse her of possessing more than 2 ounces of cocaine.
