DANBURY, Conn. -- A Bronx man has been charged with attempted murder in an Oct. 29 shooting which wounded a victim outside a residence on School Ridge Road in Danbury, according to police.

Alexander Chadee-Sierra Jr., 22, reportedly turned himself in Monday morning on a warrant at Danbury Police Headquarters where he was charged with criminal attempt to commit murder, first-degree assault and risk of injury to a minor, police say.

The arrest warrant was granted as result of an police investigation of the shooting that took place at approximately 10:41 p.m., according to police.

A 22-year-old male victim reportedly suffered one gunshot wound to his right leg/groin area while he was outside of the School Ridge Road residence, police say.

The shooting victim had been visiting friends at that location when Chadee-Sierra reportedly had arrived and allegedly had the victim summoned outside, according to police.

Just as the victim exited the residence, Chadee-Sierra allegedly fired two shots, striking him one time, police say.

Chadee-Sierra then allegedly fled in a vehicle and was believed to have traveled to the Bronx, N.Y., area, according to police.

At the time that the victim was shot, there were reportedly several people in the apartment, including a 4-year-old boy, who was allegedly standing just inside the doorway, police say.

The victim was transported to Danbury Hospital where he was treated and subsequently released, according to police.

Chadee-Sierra was held on $250,000.00 bond, police say.
