Supreme Court, Appellate Division, First Department, New York.

The PEOPLE of the State of New York, Respondent, v. Roy McNAMEE, Defendant-Appellant.

Decided: November 30, 1999

SULLIVAN, J.P., TOM, RUBIN, ANDRIAS and BUCKLEY, JJ. Ginger Suzan James, for Respondent. Bruce D. Austern, for Defendant-Appellant.

Judgment, Supreme Court, Bronx County (Patricia Williams, J.), rendered June 27, 1997, convicting defendant, after a jury trial, of attempted murder in the second degree, criminal use of a firearm in the first degree, criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree, criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree (2 counts), reckless endangerment in the first degree and criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fifth degree, and sentencing him to terms of 3 to 9 years for the attempted murder and criminal use of firearm convictions, 11/212 to 41/212 years for the second-degree weapon possession conviction, and 1 year for each of the remaining convictions, all sentences to run concurrently, unanimously affirmed.

The verdict was based on legally sufficient evidence and was not against the weight of the evidence.   We see no reason to disturb the jury's determinations concerning credibility.   There was ample evidence from which the jury could reasonably infer that defendant intended to kill the victim, including evidence that defendant returned to the scene of a prior altercation whereupon he deliberately drew a firearm, aimed it at the victim, and fired a shot.
