City Firefighter Charged Following Domestic Dispute Involving Handgun

By The Post-Journal

A Jamestown firefighter is being held in county jail following an alleged domestic incident involving a handgun.

Jamestown Police were summoned to a residence at 23 Alfred St. around 8 p.m. Saturday for a report of a domestic dispute. Upon arrival, police located the victim who alleged her boyfriend, Ryan DiDomenico, 35, held her down on the floor against her will and brandished a handgun. During the altercation, a single round was fired from the handgun into a wall of the residence.

The victim informed police that she was trying to call 911 for help during the incident but DiDomenico had taken her cellphone, forcing her to flee to a neighbor’s house.

DiDomenico is reportedly the treasurer for the Jamestown Professional Firefighters Local 1772. In January 2017 he attended the New York State Fire Academy Electrical Fire Cause and Determination I & II Training held in Montour Falls.

It is unknown if DiDomenico has been placed on paid or unpaid leave at this time. A call made late Sunday evening to the Local 1772 was unreturned by press time.

DiDomenico is facing charges of second-degree menacing, first-degree unlawful imprisonment, first-degree reckless endangerment, criminal obstruction of breathing and fourth-degree criminal mischief.
