NORTH HAVERHILL — A 23-year-old Lebanon man charged with randomly shooting a man near the Dartmouth College campus in November won’t head to trial on Wednesday, a court clerk said late Tuesday afternoon.

Gage Young was slated to head to a jury trial in Grafton County Superior Court Wednesday morning, but the trial has been delayed after defense attorney Richard Guerriero filed a motion to continue the trial until early next month. A court clerk late Tuesday said the trial has been postponed, but when it will now take place could not immediately be determined.

In his motion for continuance, Guerriero said he needed more time to prepare for the trial because Hanover police reports he received from prosecutors contained “numerous errors in identifying which officer wrote which” report, the motion states. “Correct reports are now being provided,” according to the motion. “However, considering the volume of discovery and the complexity of the case, the defense cannot reasonably be prepared for trial (this week).”

Young has pleaded not guilty to several charges, including assault, which allege he shot and wounded Thomas Elliott, a Providence College freshman who was visiting a friend at Dartmouth, from a passing car on School Street in Hanover on Nov. 2, 2018.

Young remains incarcerated pending trial.
