Alleged Econo Lodge Shooter Arraigned

STROUDSBURG — A man accused of firing shots at several people in the Poconos had a lot to say on his way out of court on Wednesday.

Shicon Jordan was brought in from New Jersey to face attempted homicide charges. Jordan is accused of firing shots last month at several people outside the Econo Lodge in Stroudsburg.

Jordan was arraigned on attempted homicide charges but said on his way out of court that police are looking at the wrong guy.

“Remember, at the end of the day, there’s a lady that’s saying she did this.  I was in New York or New Jersey when this happened.  I’m not taking blame for this.  And Judge Anzini, I want her off my case because, at the end of the day, she just showed that she has biased intentions against me.  That’s all I want to say.”

That’s what Jordan had to say after a magistrate in Stroudsburg denied him bail and arraigned him on charges of criminal attempted homicide.

Police say late last month Jordan drove up to the Econo Lodge on Park Avenue and fired shots at a woman and two other people parked outside the motel. No one was hit.

Jordan was arrested in New Jersey and brought back to Monroe County to face charges, but he claims police have the wrong man.

“I wasn’t here. There’s a lady that’s in Stroudsburg Regional right now, I mean in Monroe County, saying she did the shooting.  Do the math.  You all do y’all homework now,” said Jordan.

Jordan is talking about Michelle Walden.  According to court papers she told police that she fired the gun at the motel when a man reached in and tried to grab her necklace.

Detectives say they have proof that story is far from the truth.

“We have security video that shows something totally opposite of what he’s saying,” said Stroud Area Regional Detective Richard Wolbert.

One woman who wouldn’t give her name showed up at court to support Jordan.

“He’s a good man, he’s a good father, he’s a good godfather, he’s a good husband.  And he needs to come home.”

Jordan was arraigned on the attempted homicide charges at the magistrate’s office, but authorities say he was acting out in court, so they took him to the Monroe County prison and used a video link to arraign him on assault and firearms charges.
