Police seeking suspect who used stolen handgun to shoot victim

JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (WIVB) – Investigators are looking for a man who they say used a stolen pistol to shoot a man twice Tuesday night in Jamestown.

Around 7:30 p.m., four shots rang out at the rear of Appleyard Terrace in the 600 block of East 2nd Street. A man was struck twice as he walked in an open area behind the housing units. The victim was taken to Hamot Medical Center in Erie, Pa. where he underwent surgery.

Police are looking for 20-year-old Trenton Grant, who they say should be considered armed and dangerous. Last week, officers say Grant stole the handgun used in the shooting from a home in the Village of Lakewood. Jewelry and a computer were also taken during the burglary, but they were later recovered at two separate homes in Jamestown.
