NORWICH – A Norwich man accused of shooting at two others in an alcohol-fueled disagreement last Friday night appeared in City Court Thursday.
Lee M. Bush, 49, appeared before Judge James Cushman during a hearing held to determine if there was reasonable cause to believe a felony took place. Bush is accused of firing his 12-gauge shotgun at two men, causing multiple scattershot wounds from rounds of bird shot. The injuries were not life threatening.
Bush was charged with two counts of second degree assault, first degree reckless endangerment and third degree criminal possession of a weapon. Since he has a prior misdemeanor conviction, possessing a fire arm is a felony. During Thursday’s court proceedings, Bush was also arraigned on charges of unlawful possession of fireworks and marijuana, both violations.
