A man in jail for murder is now accused of assaulting a deputy.

Investigators say it happened during a fight at the Albany County Jail last Friday.

Jahmere Manning, 21, is accused of hurting the deputy’s hand, as the deputy tried to calm things down.

Manning is due in Colonie Town Court at a later date.

Manning fired a gun into a crowd near Essex Street in Albany last year, causing the death of 18-year-old Chyna Forney.
