Early morning standoff on Third Avenue

Albany police are investigating a shots fired incident on the 100 block of Third Avenue.

Police tell us the call came in around 3:45 a.m. when they were called for a man who had fired a gun into the air.

Officer Steve Smith said crews responded to a “man in crisis who also threatened to harm himself, fired some shots into the air.”

According to Smith the man went back into a home and Albany EMS teams were able to speak with and convince him to come outside.

The man has since been taken to the hospital for an evaluation.

Police say no one was hurt or injured and the investigation is ongoing.
