ALBION – A Rochester man who allegedly fired a rifle at two fleeing people in Medina last month was arraigned in Orleans County Court on Monday.

Nathaniel Harvey, 21, of Rochester has been charged with attempted murder in the second degree and reckless endangerment in the first degree. He has been in county jail since his arrest. Judge James Punch increased Harvey’s bail from $250,000 to $300,000 on Monday.

Punch said Harvey has a prior felony and twice he has failed to appear for prior court dates.

The two men who fled on foot on July 18 were not injured. A verbal altercation started on Church Street and moved near the corner of South Main and Oak Orchard streets. The gunshot missed the two men and also an elderly woman who was working in her garden along South Main Street.
