MASSENA -- Village police are seeking a Hogansburg man who is wanted on an arrest warrant stemming from his alleged involvement in an Aug. 3 shooting and stabbing in Massena.

Richard A. Herne, 36, of Hogansburg is wanted on four counts of first-degree robbery, four counts of first-degree burglary, three counts of first-degree assault and two counts of second-degree assault, police said. As of late afternoon, Wednesday, August 9, 2017, Herne was yet to be apprehended.

Massena police Chief Adam Love said an arrest warrant was issued for him on the morning of Aug. 7.

"Multiple agencies are on the lookout for him," Love said.

Police have charged three other people and are seeking a fourth in connection with the incident.

On Aug. 4, police say they charged Damian A. Giarratano, 23, of 243 County Route 43, Alan M. Green, 25, of 52 McCluskey Ave., and Amanda M. Terrance, 32, of 155 Main St., all in Massena.

They are all charged with four counts of first-degree robbery, four counts of first-degree burglary, three counts of first-degree assault and two counts of second-degree assault, police said.

The four are accused of breaking into 10 Cook St. around 10:25 p.m. Aug. 3. One of them was armed with a shotgun and allegedly shot Anthony A. Lewis, 31, in the chest. Another was armed with a machete and slashed Sergey Barsukov, 28, police said.

Lewis was taken to Massena Memorial Hospital and flown to University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington, Vt., where he is in serious condition. Barsukov was treated at MMH and released, police said at the time of the incident.

Love declined to say which of the suspects is accused of the shooting and which is accused of the slashing.

Giarratano, Green and Terrance were arraigned Aug. 4 in Massena court by Justice Patrick Serguson and remanded to the St. Lawrence County jail without bail, police said.

Love said anyone with information on Herne's whereabouts should contact the Massena Police Department at (315) 769-3577. He says people should take no action other than to notify law enforcement.
