Police: Man convinced his friend to shoot him

Posted:

SOUTH GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (AP) - Police in South Glens Falls say a 19-year-old man convinced his friend to shoot him during a bogus robbery so they could share an insurance settlement. But police have found no evidence of such an insurance policy and believe the teen wanted to impress his girlfriend.

The Post-Star of Glens Falls reports that police are investigating the June 22 shooting of South Glens Falls resident Richmond Principe, who suffered a chest wound.

The newspaper quotes court documents in which Terrance Naylor says he was recruited by Principe to hurt him to collect $50,000 under his father's insurance policy.

Naylor was charged with first-degree assault. Charges against Principe include offering a false written statement. Both are in jail.

It could not immediately be determined if either man had a lawyer.
