A Jamestown man has been arrested and charged following a drive-by shooting Tuesday in the city.
Investigators from the Jamestown Police Department on Thursday announced they arrested Jean Carlos Jiminez-Comacho, 22, in connection to the Chandler Street incident, in which no one was injured.
Investigators located and impounded the vehicle used in the shooting, and were able to determine that Jiminez-Camacho fired eight shots with a .22 caliber pistol out of the window of a 2002 Ford Explorer.
Police sought help from the public to identify the vehicle. No tips, however, were received before police were able to make a positive identification.
"We were checking similar vehicles to the one we identified and we felt we found one that was connected," Capt. Robert Samuelson of the Jamestown Police Department told The Post-Journal. "Once we made the interviews we were able to connect the dots and make an arrest."
Investigators were able locate and secured the weapon involved. Jiminez-Camacho was charged with reckless endangerment and is currently awaiting arraignment.
Samuelson said the driver of the vehicle has been identified but has not been charged at this time.
Asked if a motive for the shooting has been determined, Samuelson said, "The only thing I could think of is an utter lack of common sense."
"We are excited that we were able to make an arrest and recover the gun involved," he added. "It's one less gun on the streets."
According to reports, officers were called to the area of Chandler Street in the city around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday after several residents heard what they thought were gun shots. Upon arrival, officers found shell casings from a firearm in the street.
