Man shoots son through closed door

Staff report

A Goshen man pleaded not guilty on Aug. 20 after police said he shot his son around 3:30 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 19.
Jeffery Young, 49, of Goshen, is being held without bail and is being charged with second degree murder, aggravated domestic assault and two counts of reckless endangerment.

Police said Young had a verbal argument with his son, Nicholas Young, 28, of Plymouth, through a closed and locked door at his home in Goshen on Sunday. During the argument, Jeffery discharged a handgun multiple times through the same closed door, striking Nicholas, police said.

While bystanders attempted to help Nicholas, more shots were fired from inside the residence, police said in a press release.

Nicholas Young was eventually loaded into a car and driven to the Rutland area where they met a rescue team. Nicholas was then transported to Rutland Regional Medical Center, where he was treated for a non-life-threatening injury and released, police said.

Police said the shooting was not random and there is no threat to the public.

Jeffrey Young is scheduled to be in court again on Tuesday, Aug. 28 at 3:30 p.m.
