Albany Police first spotted a car wanted in an investigation, around 1:40 Monday morning.
That eventually led them across the river, where Troy Police found the car at Griswold Heights Apartments.
Police searched one of the apartments, and found two fully loaded handguns.
Alexander Wilson and Mustopha Robinson were both arrested, along with two people police say may or may not be charged as youthful offenders.
The shootings happened Sep. 3, Sep. 5, and Sep. 16.
In one case, the bullets narrowly missed a six and seven-year-old boy inside their Fifth Avenue home.
“All in all today, we stand here knowing that the four key players in what we feel has been a very violent stretch in our city, through really good detective work and vigilant patrol work, and a good nose of our K9, we now have the guns and the players off the street for further legal action,” said Captain John Cooney of Troy Police Department.
Police had said in the past they believe the shootings were connected to a feud between two rival groups.
