Meriden man charged with firing gun at Parkway Motel

MERIDEN — A local man was charged on Thursday with firing a gun at a North Broad Street motel in February.

Zackery Lariviere, 28, of Meriden, was charged with criminal possession of a firearm, unlawful discharge of a firearm, first-degree reckless endangerment and two motor vehicle infractions — misuse of plates and operating under suspension.

Police said the incident occurred at the Parkway Motel, 1966 N. Broad St., on Feb. 14 at about 9:25 a.m. Lariviere was arrested without incident, police said.

The Parkway Motel most recently made news when a New York man was arrested there on April 2 on a murder charge out of New York. Antwon Mcgowan, 29, of New York, was allegedly carrying a .380-caliber firearm and a small amount of crack cocaine. 

Mcgowan was charged in New York with second-degree murder and attempted murder. City police charged Mcgowan with criminal possession of a firearm, criminal possession of ammunition, theft of a firearm, possession of narcotics, possession of narcotics with intent to sell, and being a fugitive from justice.

Lariviere is being held on a $350,000 bond. He is due in Meriden Superior Court on Friday.
