Police: Man fired gun after argument

GLOVERSVILLE – A city man was arrested Saturday after he fired a handgun in the direction of his father and 11-year-old brother during a dispute, city police said.

Lovell Armstrong, 22, of 33 Clyde St., was charged with felony counts of first-degree menacing and first-degree reckless endangerment.

Police said the altercation occurred about 8:45 p.m. at 28 Grand St., the home of Armstrong’s father.

Police said Armstrong had gone to his father’s house to confront him about a personal matter. After a verbal argument, police said, Armstrong fired the handgun and then left the area in a BMW with a female driver.

Johnstown police officers later stopped the vehicle in Johnstown, police said.

Police said they believe Armstrong went to his residence at 33 Clyde St. after leaving his father’s house and then went to Johnstown with the female.

Police said Grand Street neighbors said they heard a gunshot, but officers found no shell casing or bullet. The handgun was not found in the vehicle, police said.

Police said officers did not find any bullet holes or a bullet casing and believe the handgun may be a revolver, which doesn’t eject used casings.

Police said this morning no one was injured from the altercation and the gun still hasn’t been located.

Armstrong was arraigned and sent to the Fulton County Jail by City Court Judge Traci DiMezza.

Police said the investigation remains open and more arrests are possible.

Anyone with information about the incident should call Det. Sgt. Mike Jory at 773-4569, police said.
