A 20-year-old man has pleaded guilty to three charges in connection with a shooting chase in May 2015.

Daryle Tyson pleaded guilty to second degree attempted murder, first degree attempted assault, and second degree criminal possession of a weapon.

According to the office of Acting District Attorney Michael J. Flaherty, Jr., Tyson fired four shots at Wesley Early on May 23, 2015, while Early was walking his 2-year-old son on Lasalle Avenue in Buffalo.

Tyson was acting out of retribution for a dispute the pair had about one of Tyson’s girlfriends, according to a statement from the D.A.’s office.

“Tyson walked toward Early and pulled a loaded pistol from his pocket. While holding his 2-year-old son, Early pleaded with Tyson not to shoot him while he was with his son. Tyson stated he did not care that Early was with his son and began to run toward Early.”

None of the four shots fired hit Early.

Tyson faces a maximum prison term of 25 years when he is sentenced by Justice Boller on February 26, 2016, at 11:00 a.m.
