A Plymouth man was shot by his father in Goshen around 3: 30 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 19, police said.
Police said Jeffery Young, 49, had a verbal argument with his son, Nicholas Young, 28, of Plymouth through a locked/closed door. During the argument, Jeffery discharged a handgun multiple times through the same closed door, striking Nicholas, police said. While bystanders were attempting to render assistance to the victim, additional shots were fired from inside the residence, police said.
Nicholas Young was eventually loaded into a car and driven to the Rutland area where they met a rescue team. Nicholas was transported to Rutland Regional Medical Center, where he was treated for a non-life-threatening injury and released, police said.
At the residence, Troopers took 49-year-old Jeffery Young into custody in connection with the incident. Investigation indicates the shooting was not random, and there is no threat to the public.
Jeffery Young was scheduled to be arraigned on Aug. 20 at the District Court in Addison County. Jeffery Young was charged with Attempted Murder 2nd degree, Attempted Voluntary Manslaughter, Aggravated Domestic Assault, and two counts of Reckless Endangerment.
