CLAREMONT — The man charged in October’s High Street shooting entered into a plea agreement Friday in the Sullivan Superior Court in Newport.
Terrell Watson, 33, pleaded guilty to first-degree assault with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit assault, and being a felon in possession of a firearm. His sentencing is scheduled for March, according to court officials.
The alleged victim in the Oct. 2 shooting, Edward Boisvert, 36, walked himself to the ambulance headquarters off North Street, a little more than a quarter of a mile from the 28 High St. apartment where the shooting took place. Boisvert had been shot in the neck and was taken to Dartmouth-Hitchcock with non-life-threatening injuries.
As part of the subsequent investigation, police executed a search warrant at a mobile-home park in Charlestown.
Detectives identified Watson as a possible suspect in the case soon after the shooting. Police report tracking Watson to Newport, where he was taken into custody.
Watson was reportedly intoxicated when he was brought to court for his initial arraignment, and that hearing was rescheduled for a week later.
