The indictment alleges that Schoonover fired multiple shots from a 16-gauge shotgun at law enforcement officers during a six-hour standoff, which initiated following a domestic dispute on the night of August 20 and concluded in the early hours of August 21.

Officers from the Bath Village Police Department, Steuben County Sheriff’s Office, and New York State Police were involved. Schoonover is currently being held without bail and will be represented by the Steuben County Sheriff’s Office, with his first court date pending.
