On May 13, at approximately 9:20 p.m., State Police in Pulaski responded to a call of person with a gunshot wound at a residence, 3510 County Route 22 in the town of Orwell.

When troopers arrived, they discovered William A. Willson, 57, from 106 Park Drive in Rome, with a gunshot wound to the buttocks.

The investigation determined Willson had discharged 3 rounds from a 9mm handgun into the ground near Timothy M. Davis’ feet during an argument.

Davis then began to retreat back into his residence when Willson continued to follow him onto the front porch.

Davis then retrieved a double-barrel shotgun from the house and subsequently shot Willson as he turned to leave the porch, police said.

Davis was arrested immediately following the incident and charged with Assault 2nd degree and Criminal Possession of a Weapon 3rd degree.

Willson turned himself in to State Police in Fulton on May 23 upon his release from the hospital.

He was charged with Criminal Possession of Weapon in the 2nd Degree, and Reckless Endangerment in the 1st Degree, both felonies.

Willson was arraigned in the Town of Volney Court, and is scheduled to return to the Town of Redfield Court on June 15 at 7 p.m.
