Bill Williams is reporting for Columbia-Greene Media that Hudson police on July 3 were called in to investigate the city’s first shooting incident of 2022, after an unidentified 19-year-old city man was shot in the leg. The incident occurred at the Hudson Terrace Apartments, Police Chief L. Edward Moore said. Hudson police responded just before 8:30 p.m. to multiple reports of shots fired near building No. 6 of the apartment complex located at 15 N. Front Street. After they arrived, police discovered that a Volkswagen SUV had been struck by a bullet, secured the area and began collecting evidence, Moore said. Then Columbia Memorial Health notified law enforcement at 9:40 p.m. that a young man had walked into the emergency department with a gunshot wound to the leg. The chief said additional police patrols were brought in following the incident. Officials from the State Police and Columbia County Sheriff’s Office assisted with the investigation. Hudson detectives are working with investigators from the State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation. Police are asking that anyone with information call the police at (518) 828-3388.
