Troy man's sentencing for 2009 shooting adjourned

Posted:

TROY, N.Y. - A Troy man who has been to trial not once, but three times for an assault case was expected to be sentenced on Thursday.

However, on Thursday, the sentencing was adjourned to April 25.

Last month, Ariel Myers was convicted on assault and weapons charges for shooting Robert Guynup in the head during a fight back in 2009.  

His first trial was declared a mistrial. Then, in August 2010, a jury convicted him of first degree assault. The conviction ended up being reversed by an appeallate court, and a new trial was ordered.

Prosecutors said Myers was in a mob of more than 50 kids at Griswold Heights with a loaded .25 caliber handgun in 2009. A single shot rang out when Guynup came outside his home from across the street to take a picture of the crowd for police.

The gun was never recovered. Guynup was left in a coma.
