Jalen Everett, already charged with first-deg ree murder, is accused o f fourth-degree crimi- n al possession of stolen p roperty in a case that is tied to Ramel Robinson, who allegedly gave Johnny Blackshell Jr. the AK-47 that was used in the mass shooting. Everett, 20, allegedly possessed a stolen laptop on Sept. 29 — the same day he was apprehended at the Buffalo Airport as he allegedly tried to leave the state. Blackshell and Evere tt are accused of fatally shooting three people outside the Boys & Girls Club at 500 Genesee St. on the night of Aug. 19. Robinson, 21, was indicted by the grand jury on five counts of second- degree burglary, includ- i ng the burglary on July 29 on Lake Avenue where R obinson allegedly stole the AK-47. Robinson was also charged in the Sept. 10 b urglary on Clay Avenue in which a gun safe that contained five weapons, including an AK-47 and an AR-15, were taken. T hat led to the Roches- t er police closing off a section of Dewey Avenue for over five hours while they executed multiple search warrants and c alled in the SWAT team t o secure the area. Robinson and Everett are scheduled to be arraigned at 9:30 a.m. Fri- d ay in front of Monroe County Judge Douglas A. Randall. Blackshell, 21, along with three others, was indicted on second-degree c riminal possession of a w eapon — a loaded 25 Aut o (6.35mm) caliber, FIE ( Firearms Import and Export) Titan semi-automatic pistol — and fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property for the Aug. 24 incident where he was ultimately detained by police at Eastview Mall in Ontario County. At this point, Blackshell was already under surveillance as a person of interest in the Genesee S treet shooting. According to court documents, Blackshell admitted that the gun was his and that no one else in the car knew it was in there. When asked what he needed the gun for, Blackshell told Roche ster Police Inv. Michael Houlihan, “that it’s a cra- z y world.” Joseph Lowry, 21, Tatianna Starling, 18, and Hakeem Cintron, 19, are e ach charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property. According to court documents, Starl ing is Blackshell’s girl- f riend. Blackshell, Lowry, Starling, and Cintron allegedly possessed stolen property from Macy’s t hat was worth over $ 1,000. They are to be arraigned at 9:30 a.m. Friday in front of Randall. New charges in multiple s hootings WILL CLEVELAND @WILLCLEVELAND13 Jalen Everett in earlier court appearance. NEW YORK - The op- e rator of the nation’s busiest bus terminal approved a plan Thursday to move ahead toward replacing the overcrowded, d ilapidated 65-year-old facility, with a goal of deciding on a final design by next fall. The vote, hailed by Port Authority of New Y ork and New Jersey board members as a major step forward, comes roughly two years after t he agency commissioned its own master plan for the bus terminal t hat yielded a variety of configurations for a new facility, later winnowed to five and then three by a working group set up six months ago. Thursday’s vote author ized the Port Authority t o hold an international design competition and choose a winner by Sept ember 2016. The project is expected to cost from $7 billion to $10 billion a nd take several years to complete. It was finished in 1950 for $24 million. E xecutive Director Patrick Foye called it “an unbelievably complicate d project, with construct ion being done at the crossroads of the world, at the site of some of the most important and expensive real estate in the w orld. “I think the time has served the project well,” he said when asked about how long it took for the Port Authority to decide t o farm out the design for the terminal. The board endorsed a site one block west of the c urrent terminal at 8th Avenue and 42nd Street that was recommended b y the working group. But the entrants in the design competition will be allowed to come up with alternative sites, officials said Thursday. The Port Authority w ill also hire an outside c onsultant to study rider- ship projections over the next few decades and rev iew the terminal project in the context of other transit projects in the re- g ion. “It can’t just be about making it bigger,” said K eith Frederick as he waited for a bus at the terminal Thursday. The 46- y ear-old Montgomery, N ew York, resident said he has been riding the bus two hours each way to his job as a construction project manager for the last n ine years. He worried about the congestion a bigger terminal could create, a challenge the Port Authority says it is keenly a ware of. The agency has taken steps in the last several months to improve bus flow in the terminal, b ut the adjacent Lincoln T unnel is a frequent cho- kepoint. Concurrent with developing plans for the new terminal, the Port A uthority will explore financing options, including selling off the land the existing terminal sits on, vice chairman Scott Rechler said Thursday. Port Authority OK’s NYC bus terminal DAVID PORTER ASSOCIATED PRESS After over a decade of cautious optimism and fundraising for the project, Ganondagan State Historic Site will open a new museum and cultural c enter on its grounds Satu rday. T he Seneca Art & Culture Center at Ganonda- gan will use art, history and education to tell the story of the Haudenosau- nee, or Iroquois, people, and specifically the Seneca nation. The Senecas lived in the Finger Lakes area and were one of six N ative American nations t o eventually compose t he Haudenosaunee Conf ederacy. The $15 million project includes nearly 3,000 square feet of gallery space depicting the Seneca lifestyle, past and present, with artifacts, models and photographs. A large theater will allow Ganondagan to hold performances and meetings indoors, while a small video theater will bring immersive film experi- e nces to visitors. The center includes classrooms for educational events. “There is a long and varied story to our past, and it’s not a complete, beautiful little story,” said Ganondagan’s site manager Peter Jemison. T he center highlights how the Haudenosaunee p eople endured adversity and preserved parts of their culture, even into modern times, he said. T he building has been along time coming for local Native Americans, as well as Ganondagan employees and partners who h ave advocated to display n ative culture and history f or surrounding communities. Ganondagan was the site of a Seneca village, referred to as the “Town of Peace,” that was destroyed by the French in 1687. The site now includes a replica, built-to- scale longhouse and hiking trails in addition to the n ew center, and the project will allow the site to be open year-round. “I was determined that this was going to happen,” Jemison said at an early preview of the center Thursday. Several speakers at the early opening c eremony mentioned that he was the only one who n ever seemed to doubt the feasibility of the development, despite some major hurdles along the w ay. “I was going to take it one step at a time … I never wavered from that belief,” he said. F unding for the pro- j ect came from the state, individuals and Native A merican nations and groups, among others. G anondagan is a historic site under the state’s Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation s ystem. “Tenyears ago, it was only a vision, it was an idea, it was a hope,” said State Parks Commission- e r Rose Harvey. “It’s a mazing that it’s a reality today.” T he center will be open for a traditional o pening ceremony at 10 a.m. Saturday, and special programming will run throughout the day u ntil 5 p.m. Admission is free. The center is located at 7000 County Route 41in Victor.
