3 Arrests Made, 4th Sought in Massena Shooting & StabbingPosted: Updated:
We've learned that Massena police have arrested three people following a shooting and stabbing Thursday night in Massena.
Damion Giarratano, 23, Amanda Terrance, 32, and Alan Green, 36, are each being charged with three counts of assault in the first degree, four counts of burglary in the first degree, two counts of assault in the second degree, and four counts of robbery in the first degree.
We've also learned a fourth man is being sought by police in connection with these charges.
Police said they were called to the 10 Cook Street home around 10:30 p.m. after one man was stabbed and another shot in the chest.
Both victims were taken to Massena Memorial Hospital and one of them -- the one who was shot -- was airlifted to University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington, where he is listed in stable condition.
The man who was stabbed was treated and released.
"It's still early in the investigation," Love said Friday morning. "We just know that there could be a couple people involved and we're just trying to find out who was involved."
State police forensic experts in hazardous materials suits were in the home early Friday morning to document evidence.
Cook Street is a small neighborhood. In fact many of the people who live on it are related and their family has lived there for decades.
A year or two ago, they say a new neighbor moved into an apartment at 10 Cook Street, and things changed. Most notably, traffic began to pick up.
"I don't know what they were there for, but there was traffic. A lot. And this is a family street. We all talk, we all know something, but don't know what," said Breanna Waters, who lives on Cook Street.
Right next door to where the stabbing and shooting happened is a small salon. Jess McFaul's mother lives there and runs the shop out of her house.
McFaul says for about a year people have come and gone from the house next door at all hours of the day.
Lately, some of them weren't too happy.
"A lot of arguing, especially the last few days. There's cars been flying right in, fighting with them. Going inside, outside, out on the road," said McFaul.
But she says the neighbor has always been a pretty nice guy.
Others in the neighborhood call him a friend.
"We all came outside wondering what was going on. Come to find out that a friend of ours had got shot up the road from what we were hearing," said Blake Moody, who lives on Cook Street.
Thursday night's violence has Breanna Waters scared.
"We're just afraid for our kids and stuff and we kind of wanna move out of Massena," she said.
Others think, because of the amount of traffic going to this house, more could have been done to prevent the shooting from ever happening.
"Something should have been done about it before, it was completely obvious. It's too bad that it ended this way," said McFaul.
