An Albany man who pulled the trigger during a shots fired incident in October on Clinton Avenue was arrested Saturday at the scene for a separate shots fired incident.
Police say at approximately 4 a.m., officers responded to the 100 block of Orange Street for reports of shots fired. Upon arrival, officers determined that shots had been fired at that location and began to conduct an investigation. No injuries were reported during an incident.
While on scene, officers observed parolee Jason Bryant, 34, wanted in connection with the October shooting, and took him into custody.
During the October 24th incident, Bryant fired several shots from a 9mm handgun while in the front seat passenger of a car driving through the intersection. No injuries were reported during that incident.
Approximately 45-minutes following the original call for shots fired on October 24th, Albany police officers conducted a traffic stop on the 200 block of Third Street after observing a vehicle possibly involved in the incident at Clinton Avenue and Lexington Avenue.
The driver, 37-year-old Bryan Conner of Albany, fled from officers on foot and was taken into custody following a brief foot pursuit. A 9mm handgun that Conner discarded during the foot pursuit was subsequently recovered by officers.
Conner was charged with one count of Criminal Possession of a Weapon 3rd.
The investigation into this morning’s incident remains ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact the Albany Police Detective Division at 518-462-8039.
