City Man Charged After Firing Weapon In Apartment

Anthony M. Camarata

No one was injured, and a Jamestown man was jailed, after a shot was fired through the floor of an East Fifth Street apartment.

Officers and members of the Jamestown Metro Drug Task Force responded at about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday for a gunshot complaint. It was reported that 37-year-old Anthony M. Camarata, who was on parole, allegedly discharged a firearm inside his 509 E. Fifth St. apartment.

In a news release, Jamestown police said the bullet traveled through the floor and entered the apartment below. Following the incident, officers were able to call Camarata out of his apartment without incident.

Investigators obtained a search warrant for the residence, and efforts began to locate the gun used in the shooting.

“Detectives watch video surveillance from nearby locations which assisted in the recovery of the shotgun used,” JPD said. “The gun used during this incident was recovered from the porch of a nearby home.”

Camarata is facing charges of first-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and third-degree criminal mischief. The city man was out on parole after being convicted on a third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance charge.
