On 6 Jul 11 Deputy Sheriff Lockhart and the Watertown Fire Department were dispatched to a fire at the residence of Wayne E. McNabb, age 38, 75 Davis Road, Watertown. Mr. McNabb was at a friend’s home at the time of the fire but returned to his residence after hearing the fire department was en route. The Watertown fire chief said he believes the fire was caused by an electrical problem in the home’s basement and does not appear to have been intentionally set. The fire caused an estimated $85,000 to $100,000 in damage.

On 6 Jul 11 a forty-four year old Marietta resident was transported to Marietta Memorial Hospital after she was found unconscious, lying in a pool of blood. The woman’s family said the victim was an alcoholic and complained of having a headache for several days. Emergency room personnel believe the woman was bleeding on her brain and needed surgery. The victim’s current condition is unknown (1184).


On 5 July 11 at approximately 9:22 pm Deputy Sheriff Caltrider and other officers were dispatched to the scene of a drive by shooting at the residence of Michael Slonaker, age 27, 316 Main Street, New Matamoras. An investigation revealed that after a verbal argument between other individuals at this location, Charles R. “Chuck” Lamp, age 56, 4065 West Ridge Road Lot 10, Erie, PA, and Nicky L. Lamp, age 38, 29795 State Route 7, Marietta, left and then returned to 316 Main Street in a black Chevrolet Cavalier with a handgun that was obtained from a friend. Witnesses later identified Nicky Lamp as the driver and Charles Lamp as the passenger.

The Lamps drove by 316 Main Street and Charles Lamp allegedly fired two shots from the weapon, one of which struck and remained lodged in Mike Slonaker’s buttocks. Fleeing the scene, the Lamps swerved the vehicle and attempted to strike two individuals who were standing nearby, observing the alteration. The vehicle missed one person, but struck Amen Dunn, age 24, 707 Second Street, New Matamoras, in the right leg. Dunn was treated at the scene and transported to Marietta Memorial Hospital. His current condition is unknown.

Charles and Nicky Lamp were subsequently located driving the Chevrolet Caviler in Monroe County and detained by the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office. Charles Lamp was charged with a first degree felony offense of Attempted Murder. Nicky Lamp was charged with Complicity to Commit Murder, also a first degree felony offense. Other charges against the duo are pending. Both remain incarcerated in the Washington County Jail in lieu of bond pending their initial appearance in Marietta Municipal Court.
