The Palmyra resident has been charged with malicious wounding, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and possession of a firearm by a felon in connection to an Oct. 23 shooting off Preston Avenue.
Officers were called to the 800 block of Forest Street around 8:50 p.m. on Oct. 23 for reports of shots fired.
