Two More Involved In Break-In Caught

Two more suspects wanted in connection to Tuesday’s early morning home invasion and gunfire exchange with police were taken into custody Thursday in Buffalo. One remains at large.

Captain Robert F. Samuelson, division commander of the Jamestown Police Department, said that one of the suspects, a parolee, was detained after he showed up at the Buffalo parole office. He is currently being questioned by Jamestown investigators.

The other suspect was found after further investigation and taken into custody on a parole violation in Erie County.

The final suspect at large is reportedly the one who may have been injured from the gunfire exchange with police, Samuelson said.

Six suspects are now in custody for allegedly breaking into the 188 Falconer St. home Tuesday and attacking the residents inside over an apparent drug-related issue.

Details on the number of victims, their connection with the suspects or the extent of their injuries were not released.

Jamestown Police responded to the scene shortly after 3 a.m. and observed three suspects attempting to escape out of a window. The last one to leave fired a shot at an officer before fleeing with the other two in a southern direction behind the houses on Stowe Street.

The police officer, who was uninjured, returned fire. It is unclear whether any of the suspects were injured.

Two men were found hiding inside the residence and charged with first-degree burglary. Two others were found walking on the railroad tracks west of Jamestown and detained on parole violations and as persons-of-interest.

Police have not released any of the suspects’ names.
