A Long Island man was arraigned in Otsego County Court on Tuesday morning in connection with the shooting death of Charles Bruce, 52, of Franklin Square.
Robert Gerbino, 57, of Garden City, was charged with criminally negligent homicide in connection with Bruce’s death, following a March indictiment.
The two had been hunting with a group in the town of Westford in November. Gerbino shot at what he said he thought was a deer about 60 yards away, hitting Bruce in the chest. Bruce died at the scene.
