A 52-year-old man is accused of shooting and wounding another man with a rifle over the weekend in Dayton.

Andre L. Harrington was arraigned Monday in Dayton Municipal Court for felonious assault and having weapons while under disability for a previous robbery conviction.

Dayton police were called around 10:45 p.m. Saturday to the 2000 block of Catalpa Drive on a report of a shooting.

A man yelled from the window to responding officers that someone was shot in the hallway of an apartment, according to an affidavit.

At the rear of the apartment building, officers saw a man later identified as Harrington drop something on the ground as he tried to run away. Officers stopped him and found that he had discarded a .22 rifle.

The gunshot victim, a 42-year-old Dayton man who was shot in the upper right torso, was expected to recover.

Harrington reportedly admitted to having the rifle but denied shooting the victim, the affidavit stated.

He is held on a $10,000 bond in the Montgomery County Jail and is next due in court April 13 for a preliminary hearing to determine whether the case against him should be bound over to a county grand jury for consideration.
