Norfolk -- Sunday at approximately 5:00pm, State Police investigated a shooting incident off the Southville-West Stockholm Road in the Town of Stockholm.
According to Police, the 24 year old male victim from Norfolk had been asking his friend, Shawn Mossow, age 25, also of Norfolk, if he would shoot him in the leg so he would know what it feels like. Mossow told police that he finally relented to the victim’s request and shot him once in the right leg with a .22 caliber rifle. The victim was treated at Canton/Potsdam Hospital and then transferred to Fletcher Allen Hospital in Burlington, Vermont, for treatment of a non-life threatening gunshot wound to the right leg and is expected to make a full recovery.
Mossow was charged with one count of first-degree reckless endangerment, arraigned in the Town of Stockholm Court, and remanded to St Lawrence County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash or $20,000 bond.
The investigation into this incident is continuing.
