Syracuse Police: Shooting suspect found held down and disarmed

SYRACUSE (WSYR-TV) - A man suspected in a shooting on Delhi Street was arrested after Syracuse Police found him being held down without a gun at the scene.

Police found a 21-year-old man suffering from gunshots wounds to his chest when they responded to the home in the city’s Hawley-Green neighborhood around 3:15 a.m.

While they were on the scene, police were told that other people in the home were holding down a suspect and that he’d been disarmed.

Investigators believe 20-year-old Tyriek Spann of James Street entered the home and tried to rob the victim at gunpoint.

After he fired one shot at the victim, other people in the home subdued him, police say.

Police took Spann into custody and charged him with second-degree assault, second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, first-degree robbery, and fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.

The gun Spann allegedly used was reported stolen in December 2016, according to police.

The victim was taken to Upstate University Hospital.

Police do not believe his injuries are life threatening.
