Columbia County manhunt forces lockouts at two school districts
Mid-Hudson News is reporting a shooting on Woods Road in Clermont on June 10 resulted in one man being injured and led to the Germantown and Red Hook school districts calling a lockout while police searched for the suspect. After the shooting, the suspect fled the scene and was apprehended on Warren Street in Hudson by the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office and members of the State Police. The man was identified as Tremaine Harris, age 21, of Ghent, and police charged him with attempted murder, criminal possession of a weapon, and three counts of reckless endangerment. Police allege that Harris targeted and attempted to murder the owner of the Southwood Estate, a wedding and event venue on Woods Road in Germantown, by shooting a 12-gauge shotgun at the man several times, striking him in the leg. Several estate employees were nearby when the shooting took place. The injuries sustained by the victim are believed to be non-life-threatening. Police executed a search warrant June 10, at the Harris residence in Ghent where police found three guns — two stolen and all three illegally possessed by Terrence Harris, age 42. He was then arrested and charged with criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of stolen property. Both men were arraigned in Clermont Court and then remanded to the Columbia County Jail without bail. Read more at MidHudsonNews [dot] com.
