GLOVERSVILLE - City police said a man was arrested in New Hampshire on Thursday in connection with the May 17 shooting of a woman in the city.

Corey A. Wollard, 21, currently residing in Seabrook, N.H., was charged by police in New Hampshire on a fugitive from justice warrant. He was then charged by the city police on an active warrant stemming from a sealed indictment in Fulton County Superior Court.

Wollard stands charged with third-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

According to the indictment, the shooting happened in Wollard's then-residence on 174 Spring St., and the firearm used in the shooting of Danielle Schonfarber, 20, was his.

Joseph Miller, 20, and Michael Perreault, 24, were both previously charged in relation to the incident.

Miller was indicted by a Fulton?County grand jury Sept. 21 on charges of second-degree assault, third-degree criminal possession of a weapon and first-degree reckless endangerment.

Miller had been arrested by city police in July on the same charges in the shooting, which severely injured Schonfarber. The indictment said he "did recklessly cause serious physical injury" to Schonfarber by "recklessly discharging" a .223 Olympic Arms semiautomatic rifle inside a residence at 174 Spring St.

Police said in July that officers found the weapon hidden behind a shed at the residence. Police said Wollard of North Street brought the weapon to the residence, and Miller was in possession of the weapon when it fired. Miller, Wollard and other occupants had been drinking before the incident, police said.

Wollard was arraigned in?Fulton?County Court and sent to the Fulton County Sheriff's Office with no bail set.
