Alleged gunman surrenders
A 24-year-old Dunkirk man who was accused in a city shooting on Swan Street has turned himself over to police.
According to the Dunkirk Police Department, Traiquane C. Nance of 212 Plover St., Dunkirk, surrendered with his attorney present at police headquarters Monday at around 11:45 a.m.
Nance was processed at the police department for an outstanding warrant charging him with second-degree assault and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, both Class D felonies.
Bail was set by the Dunkirk City Court at $40,000 cash or $80,000 property bond.
The incident leading to Nance’s arrest took place near 426 Swan St. Wednesday at around 4 a.m., which is when he allegedly shot a male resident of 426 Swan St. in his right hip after the resident reportedly went outside to stop some sort of vandalism that was occurring in the street.
An intensive search for Nance was conducted up until the time he turned himself in.
