MAYVILLE – Jury selection for the trial of one of the Jamestown men linked to the July 24 shooting at Tops Supermarkets on Washington Street will begin in April.
The Jamestown Post-Journal says 31 year-old Michael Robinson will be represented by Jamestown attorney Avery Olson, while Assistant District Attorney John Zuroski will prosecute the case.
Robinson and his alleged accomplice, 23 year-old Alexander Jewell of Jamestown, were handed a two-count indictment in August by a Chautauqua County Grand Jury, charging them with second-degree attempted murder and first-degree assault.
The charges stem from a July 24 incident at the Tops parking lot, in which a Jamestown man was shot in a drive-by shooting around 6 p.m. According to police, the shooting caused serious injury the unidentified victim, who was shot several times as he walked toward the store. Robinson and Jewell were taken into custody the following day after an investigation.
Jury selection for Jewell’s trial will begin March 8.
