Gunman in Trucking Company Shooting Gets 5 to 10 Years

October 4, 2016


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Thomas Gannon, 215.348.6461, tcgannon@buckscounty.org

A Georgian national who shot and critically wounded a truck driver who had assaulted his friend during a workplace dispute was sentenced this morning to serve five to 10 years in state prison.

Zurab Gambashidze pleaded guilty to a felony count of illegally possessing a firearm, negligent simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, possession of an instrument of crime and conspiracy to possess an instrument of crime and related offenses in the Jan. 26 shooting of Giorgi Chuguashvili.

Gambashidze, 30, admitted to police that he shot Chuguashvili, 47, once in the chest with a 9-mm handgun he had borrowed. The shooting occurred in the parking lot of Philadelphia Express Group, a Bensalem trucking company for which Chuguashvili worked as a driver.

Chuguashvili and a truck dispatcher who was a friend of Gambashidze’s had gotten into a physical altercation earlier in the afternoon while arguing over Chuguashvili’s driving assignments.

The dispatcher, Giorgi Kalandadze, was so incensed after the fight that he went home and recruited three friends to help him confront Chuguashvili, police allege.

Gambashidze told police he fired the gun after Chuguashvili attacked him with a heavy towing chain. After Chuguashvili slumped bleeding to the pavement, Gambashidze, Kalandadze and the other two men fled in a light-colored Mercedes.

Chuguashvili was admitted to Aria Health-Torresdale Campus in critical condition, but has recovered from the wound. He was not present in court today.

Bucks County Common Pleas Court Judge Gary B. Gilman accepted the terms of a plea negotiation that called for Gambashidze to serve five to 10 years on the firearms charge with no further penalty for the remaining crimes.

Gambashidze was prohibited from having a gun because of a 2013 robbery conviction in Philadelphia.

Kalandadze and two other defendants in the case are scheduled for trial on Oct. 18.

The case was investigated by Bensalem Township police and prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Thomas Gannon.

Approved for release by Michele Kelly Walsh, Deputy District Attorney.

    It’s no secret that taking screenshots in iOS 11 is now a lot more robust than it’s been in previous versions of iOS. No longer is it just about pressing Home + Sleep; in iOS 11, taking screenshots goes much deeper.
