Armed robbery and shooting in the city

Two Jamestown men were arrested Friday night in separate incidents in the city of Dunkirk.

According to a press release by the Dunkirk Police Department, the first incident occurred at about 9:45 p.m. on the 100 block of King Street, where a man reported being robbed at gunpoint. A description of the suspect and the vehicle involved were obtained.

At around midnight, patrols located the suspect vehicle near Central Avenue and Second Street. As patrols approached, gunshots rang out and subjects were seen running toward the suspect vehicle.

Officers apprehended Terin Butler, 22, and Anthony Darling, 21, as they attempted to get into the vehicle.

A Dunkirk man was struck by the gunfire during the incident, but fled the scene. He was located on Fourth Street with a gunshot wound to the arm. He was uncooperative with the police and refused treatment.

Further investigation led to the arrest of Butler for second-degree robbery and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, both felonies in reference to the first incident on King Street. He is being held in the city jail pending arraignment.

Darling was arrested and charged with first-degree reckless endangerment, third-degree criminal possession of a weapon and third-degree criminal mischief, all felonies, in reference to the second incident on Second Street and Central Avenue. The criminal mischief charge stems from the subject smashing a rear window of a patrol car while in custody. Darling was also charged with unlawful possession of marijuana and discharging a firearm. He is also being held in the city jail pending arraignment.

Dunkirk Police were assisted by both the Fredonia Police and the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Department.
