A 27-year-old Bronx man faces 25 years to life behind bars in connection with a Schenectady shooting back in 2008.
The Schenectady County District Attorney’s office says a jury convicted Jeremiah Hamilton of murder in the second degree for shooting Jerrome Cannon, 20, on Lincoln Avenue.
Witnesses say the two were friends and that Cannon was shot while trying to make peace after a fight that sparked from a dice game. They say Hamilton was aiming the gun for someone else when Cannon got in the way.
Hamilton fired three shots from a .25 caliber handgun. He also faces charges for attempted murder and reckless endangerment in the first degree and weapons charges.
