Steven T. Carter

WATERTOWN — Two months after shots rang out on Meadow Street, city police have charged a suspect in the case.

On April 21, at 9:54 p.m., city police officers were dispatched to the 100 block of Meadow Avenue, where there was a report of a gun being fired on the street outside a residence during a fight. The suspect fled before patrols arrived.

Steven T. Carter, 31, 541 Water St., was located in the Jefferson County Court building on Monday and arrested for his alleged involvement in the shooting. Police said he fired the weapon near Monique Farney, Abrianna Parson and Alexis Ezell.

He was taken to the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building where he was charged by city police with third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a felony, and three counts of second-degree reckless endangerment, all misdemeanors. He was jailed and held on no bail after arraignment.
