SCHENECTADY, N.Y. -- Pillows lay near a telephone pole at the scene of Friday's shooing in Schenectady. On Saturday, those pillows were joined by dozens of candles.
Charles Bowman, 43, was shot several times on Friday. A woman who identified herself as Bowman's aunt, was too overcome with tears to speak about him. However, a friend of Bowman's described him as a good person.
"Chuck was outgoing. He was friendly, he looked out for you," remembered, Judith Jemenez. "He wasn't a bad person, he meant well."
Schenectady Police said the man who shot Bowman turned himself in shortly after the incident occurred. Terrel Bethea, 28, was arraigned on Saturday in Schenectady City Court. He has been charged with second degree murder, criminal possession of a weapon, and criminal possession of stolen property. Officers said the gun that Bethea used was stolen from Vermont. Bethea was sent to Schenectady County Jail without bail.
