SYRACUSE, N.Y. – The man accused of shooting another man in the leg at Destiny USA in Syracuse is claiming it was an act of self-defense.

Defense attorneys say on Black Friday, Kyree Truax was involved in a fight with a group of people, claiming he shot at them in self-defense because he was outnumbered.

Truax is facing charges of second-degree assault, second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and first-degree reckless endangerment.

Truax claims he left the scene to take his friend, who was stabbed during the altercation, to the hospital. They were then involved in an accident with a Centro bus.

According to the prosecution, security cameras show Truax as the shooter. They also say he has a criminal history.
