SCHENECTADY -- Two men have been charged in connection with the Nov. 20 shooting on Union Street that left a man injured, authorities said.

Jahtu S. Wallace, 22, and Markeith A. Buchanan, 21, both of Schenectady, each face one count of first-degree assault and first-degree attempted robbery, felonies.

Buchanan was arrested Wednesday, while Wallace was arrested the day after the shooting, authorities said.

The two are accused of working together to rob a man just after 6:30 p.m. at an address on Union Street between Park Avenue and Wendell Avenue, according to police.

Wallace is accused of going into the address to rob the residents and then committing the shooting. Wallace was also charged with one count of first-degree criminal use of a firearm, a felony.

Buchanan is accused of waiting outside as the getaway driver, prosecutor Kyle Petit said Thursday.

Wallace fired an unknown type of weapon and hit the victim in the hip, according to the allegations. The victim was taken to Albany Medical Center for treatment. He was released the next day.
