SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — The 22-year-old father of a Syracuse toddler murdered three years ago in a gang-related shooting has been charged with trying to shoot a rival to death.

Syracuse police say Rashaad Walker Sr. is charged with second-degree attempted murder in connection with a shooting Nov. 19.

Walker is accused of pulling his car alongside the car of a 40-year-old man with whom he's had a long-running dispute. Syracuse police Sgt. Tom Connellan says the victim believed the two men were meeting to discuss their differences.

City Court records show that Walker fired four rounds from a .45-caliber handgun into the car. Connellan tells The Post-Standard of Syracuse ( ) none of the shots struck the victim.

Walker is being held on $100,000 bond or $50,000 cash bail.
