Police arrested an Olean man for accidentally shooting his live-in girlfriend earlier this week.
Around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, police charged Logan Cooper, 24, of 1530 Martin St. with first-degree reckless endangerment, a class D felony; second-degree assault, a class D felony; and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a class E felony.
Authorities said Cooper accidentally shot Connie Mascho, 28, in the right shoulder with a .40-caliber semi-automatic pistol at 8:53 p.m. Monday. Cooper also injured one of his fingers in the incident.
Cooper, police say, does not have a pistol permit, as required under state law.Would this be considered a SAFE Act arrest? Do you think he would have been arrested had there been no permit requirement?
