In June of 2017, Glover was exchanging gunfire with 18-year-old Kamiu Blake on North Street in Rochester when Nash was responding to an unrelated call. Nash was struck in the head and body with multiple pellets fired from a Glover's shotgun. 

Nash has since recovered from his injuries.

Glover and Blake were arrested back in March. 

Glover will be sentenced on Nov. 19. He faces up to 18 years behind bars.

Blake pleaded guilty to one count of attempted assault in July. He was sentenced to 12 years behind bars with five years post-release supervision.
