Man charged with firing gun at boy on bicycle


A 29-year-old man is accused of firing a gun at a boy on a bicycle very early Sunday morning and hitting the bicycle, according to Rome Police. The boy was unharmed.

Authorities said Christopher M. Adams, of West Dominick Street, got into an argument with a boy riding a bicycle near Park Drive Manor at about 2 a.m. Sunday. When the boy rode by again, police said Adams fired a handgun in the boy’s direction and the bullet hit the bicycle.

The boy was not struck or injured, police stated.

Adams was identified and police said he, at first, refused to come out of an apartment at Park Drive Manor. There was a brief standoff before Adams eventually surrendered and walked out, authorities stated.

Adams is charged with one count each of second-degree possession of a weapon and first-degree reckless endangerment, both felonies, police said. He is scheduled to appear in court.
