Jamestown Man Sentenced to 20 Years in State Prison for 2021 Shooting Death

Jamestown, New York – A man from Jamestown has been sentenced to 20 years in state prison for the shooting death of another city resident in October 2021. Jonathan Camacho-Monge, 24, was also sentenced to five years of post-release supervision by County Court Judge David Foley, according to Chautauqua County District Attorney Jason Schmidt. He pleaded guilty to a charge of first-degree manslaughter for his role in the shooting death of Angel Pacheco outside his Water Street home.

Camacho-Monge had previously pleaded not guilty to a second-degree murder charge and had been held in jail in Mayville on bail set at $250,000 cash, $500,000 property bond. The case was scheduled to go to trial before he pleaded guilty to the manslaughter charge.

The shooting occurred on the night of October 19, 2021, when Jamestown officers were called to Pacheco’s home for a reported gunshot victim. Pacheco, 46, was taken to UPMC Chautauqua where he later died of his injuries.

The case had been delayed for about six months because Camacho-Monge was being held in Pennsylvania on a separate felony-level charge. A woman who lives near the scene at the time of the shooting stated, “We heard a boom, and before you know it we seen lights going by the house. Someone came by and heard on the scanner it was a gunshot.”

This sentencing brings a resolution to the tragic incident, providing justice for the victim and closure for the community. Camacho-Monge’s guilty plea and subsequent sentencing highlight the consequences of such violent actions, sending a strong message about the severity of the crime. The District Attorney’s office has made it clear that they will not tolerate such acts of violence, and perpetrators will be held accountable for their actions.

In conclusion, Jonathan Camacho-Monge has been sentenced to 20 years in state prison and five years of post-release supervision for the shooting death of Angel Pacheco in Jamestown, New York. This serves as a reminder of the serious consequences of violent crimes and the commitment of the legal system to seek justice for the victims.
