ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A Rochester man is facing weapons charges in connection to the 9mm Polymer 80 "ghost gun" that police found while searching the Glendale Park home where the triple shooting that included a 3-year-old victim happened last month.

The shooting happened on Jan. 13, and at one point, police said the toddler had critical injuries.

On Thursday, police arrested Arthur Carter III, 30. Police say they believe the ghost gun, as well as some cocaine that was found during the search, belonged to him.

Carter was charged with second and third degree criminal possession of a weapon as well as criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Police have already charged Richard Burchard-Lopez, who they say they believe is responsible for the shooting, with two counts of first and second degree assault and second degree criminal possession of a weapon.
