Aug 24, 2017 7:15 am
Robert Gavin is reporting in the Times Union on the continued targeted violence occurring in the city of Hudson. On Tue., Aug. 22, 31-year-old Kevin Whitening, of North Front Street, was shot on North 3rd Street. He later succumbed to his injuries at Columbia Memorial Hospital. Three unidentified people were arrested and questioned Wednesday. Also Wednesday, a home in the 500 block of State Street was raided, but there was no indication if that action had anything to do with the shootings. Hudson Police Chief Ed Moore said the violence involves "two factions that haven't gotten along for a long time." He stopped short of calling the incidents gang-related, but said police were investigating possible outside gang influences. Moore also announced Wednesday that he has expanded all officers' shifts to 12 hours to provide overlapping coverage. State Police, Columbia County sheriff's deputies and federal authorities were assisting, he said. Read the full story in the Times Union.
