SCHENECTADY - A Binghamton man has been arrested in connection with a July 2018 shooting in Schenectady that injured a man in the leg, authorities said.

The suspect is also accused of firing at the victim while a small child was present in his general direction, according to police allegations filed in court.

Keltiek Simmons, 31, was arrested last week and charged with one count each of second-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault, first-degree reckless endangerment and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, all felonies.

According to police allegations filed in court, Simmons is accused of pointing and firing a loaded handgun at a man just after midnight on July 14, 2018, while at the Lucky Market located at 752 Albany St.

The victim suffered a gunshot wound to his left calf and was treated at Ellis Hospital for his injuries, according to the allegations.

The reckless endangerment count relates to the allegation related to the child's presence near the victim when Simmons allegedly fired, according to the allegations.

Simmons remained at the Schenectady County Jail Thursday where he is being held without bail.
