Shotgun blast brings charges


Tonawanda News — Jerry M. Incorvaia, 37, also of 6 Walnut St., was arrested as well. Incorvaia was charged with criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree and fourth-degree conspiracy.

“She was working in concert with him do do something,” Seekins said. “She came up to the area with Houghton with intent (to break the law).”

The third person inside 119 Genesee St. appears to be uninvolved, Seekins said, and is being treated as a witness.

Both Houghton and Incorvaia are known to local police agencies.

Seekins said Houghton has a prior arrest for grand larceny and several arrests for various misdemeanors. Incorvaia “has had a lot of police contact” as well, Seekins said. She was recently charged with aggravated harassment for allegedly “jostling” a 15-year-old victim in November.

No one was injured from the gun shot, which caused $500 damage at 107 Genesee St. There were two women inside the house at the time it was struck and one of them was lightly hit by plaster form the shot.

At police headquarters, Detective Kevin Schrader suffered a broken thumb from a struggle with Houghton. Seekins said the “light scuffle” happened after Houghton was advised of his charges.

Police have the shotgun and surplus ammunition which was attached to the stock, the spent slug and the casing from fired slug.
