Albany, NY

ALBANY, NY – The person behind the wheel of a vehicle used in a March 2021 daytime shooting incident in Albany has been arrested.

The driver, who was 17-years-old at the time of the shooting incident, was arrested Friday following an investigation by detectives of the Albany Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Unit. 

On Friday, March 12, 2021 around 11:50 a.m., officers responded to the 300 block of Livingston Avenue just east of Judson Street for reports of a shooting. Upon arrival, a 27-year-old man was located inside of a vehicle with a gunshot wound to his shoulder and also to his hand. A woman sitting in the passenger seat was not injured during the shooting. 

The man was treated at the scene by emergency medical personnel and transported to Albany Medical Center Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

Through the investigations, detectives determined that while on Livingston Avenue, the suspects pulled their vehicle up alongside the victim’s vehicle and fired several rounds from .40 caliber and .45 caliber handguns towards the victims. 

In addition, detectives learned that the 17-year-old, whose name will not be released do his age, was driving the vehicle while two other men inside the vehicle fired shots at the victims. 

The adolescent offender has been charged with two counts of Attempted Murder 2nd for his role in the incident and is scheduled to be arraigned in Albany County Family Court. 

Alvin Foy, 18, and Jahmere Manning, 19, both of Albany, were arrested by Albany detectives back on August 9, 2021 for their role in the shooting incident. 

Each were charged with two counts of Attempted Murder 2nd and one count of Criminal Possession of a Weapon 2nd
