SCHENECTADY - A city man has been arrested in connection with a May shooting in Schenectady and he's accused of conspiring with another person to do so, authorities said.

Moises Ortiz, 40, of Delamont Avenue, was arrested Thursday and charged with second-degree attempted murder, as well as fourth-degree conspiracy and two other counts.

Ortiz is accused of firing at another person just before 3 a.m. May 18 on Duane Avenue, near Brandywine Avenue, causing serious injury to the victim, according to police allegations filed in court. The victim was hit in the abdomen.

Police filings also reference another person firing and that Ortiz conspired "with a second party" to commit the attempted murder, according to the allegations.

Ortiz also faces one count of first-degree assault and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, felonies.
