A New York father of nine faces a third murder charge in connection to a three-week shooting spree that occurred over a year ago now that a gunshot victim recently died.
Between July and August 2020, Tyquan Graham, 27, is accused of four shootings in Syracuse, police said. On July 26, Graham allegedly shot Erskine Dodson, who later died at Upstate University Hospital, according to Syracuse.com.
Early the following morning, shots were fired into a residence but there were no reported injuries.
A second man, 45-year-old Charles Peacock, was shot dead on Aug. 4 just after 1 a.m., police said.
The murder suspect then allegedly gunned down and paralyzed a third victim, Dayzhair Rucker, at a gas station on Aug. 16.
Police arrested Graham in September and he was eventually charged with two counts of murder in connection to Dodson and Peacock’s deaths and one count of attempted murder for Rucker’s shooting.
Rucker, 23, recently died from his injuries. According to Syracuse.com, a grand jury will now determine if Graham's charges should be upgraded from attempted murder to murder in the case.
Graham, who is being held without bail, has adamantly denied he was involved in any of the three shootings and a trial is set to begin in February.
He faces 90 years to life in prison if convicted.
