LEWISTON (NEWS CENTER Maine) — Lewiston police have brought charges against a man in connection with a July 1 shooting at the corner of Ash and Blake streets.
James Crump of Auburn was charged Wednesday with attempted elevated aggravated assault Class B, reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon Class C and criminal mischief Class D.
Crump was already in jail for an apparent July 7 shooting on Bartlett Street, charged the following day with robbery, possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and aggravated reckless conduct. Two other suspects were also charged in connection with that apparent shooting.

Police said they were able to locate a victim who was shot at by Crump. They said the victim, whose name was not being released pending the ongoing investigation, was not injured during the incident.
Crump was initially listed by police as being 41 years old from Dorchester, Massachusetts, when he was arrested in connection with the July 7 shooting incident.
Crump remains at Androscoggin County Jail and his bail is set at $100,000.
