Syracuse Police Arrest Man in Monday's Shooting

Reported by: Leigh Paynter

Syracuse police have charged Jabre Davis with attempted murder after a shooting on Monday afternoon that has left another man in critical condition. Sgt. Tom Connellan said Davis was charged soon after midnight - this is nearly eight hours after the shooting.

James Ellis, 28, was shot in the head on Salina Street and is still in critical condition at University Hospital Connellan said. Ellis was found, yesterday, lying on the ground near a house at 116 Matson Avenue. Police say the motive is still unclear at this point.

Connellan says police are still looking for the gun that was used in the shooting.

Police said four people - two men and two women - were taken into custody after the shooting but Davis is the only one who has been charged so far. Davis was set to be arraigned today in criminal court.

NCC News Reporter Leigh Paynter was not there for the event but, she followed up on Tuesday.
