Watertown Man Sentenced To Prison For Firing Weapon In Neighborhood

(Watertown) A Watertown man was sentenced Monday to three and a half years in prison for firing a weapon in a neighborhood during an argument. In April, Paris Selvie entered a no contest plea to a felony count of Second Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety and Possession of a Firearm as a Convicted Felon. A felony charge of Reckless Use of a Firearm was dismissed but read into the record. Selvie drove to a residence on Harold Street in Watertown and fired three shots at another person last October. Witnesses were able to get the license plate of Selvie’s vehicle which authorities were able to use to locate him. During a search of another vehicle at his property, authorities found ammunition that matched the shell casings recovered at the scene. When questioned, Selvie at first denied involvement and said he was on the other side of town. He eventually admitted to firing the weapon and then disposing of the gun. Selvie took officers to County Road CW where the firearm was located in a ditch. The weapon was still loaded and ready to fire when it was recovered. At sentencing, Assistant District Attorney Margaret Kunisch said this criminally reckless conduct will not be tolerated in the community. The 29-year-old was also placed on extended supervision for three and a half years.
