LOCKPORT – A man who took part in a June 22 shootout in Niagara Falls was placed on six months’ interim probation Friday, to give Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas more time to decide what to do with him.

Charles H. Montague, 22, of Linwood Avenue, had pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of attempted second-degree criminal possession of a weapon in the wake of the June 18 gunfire at the corner of 18th and Niagara streets.

No one was hurt, and the other shooter has never been identified. Montague faces a maximum sentence of seven years in prison.
