An Erie man is charged with attempted homicide following a shooting at a New Year’s Day party.
That incident happened in the 600 block of Wallace Street when 41-year-old Jarrett Beason allegedly got into a verbal altercation with a female at the party.
He reportedly pointed a gun at the woman and pulled the trigger, but the bullet missed the woman and struck a window.
Beason then fled the scene.
Beason was taken into custody early Friday morning at a residence in the 400 block of East 13th Street.
He faces several charges, including criminal attempted homicide, attempted aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, criminal mischief and possession of a firearm.
