The man police say fired several shots at a home in Albany Sunday night was caught the next day with a loaded gun.

Bullets hit a home on North Manning Boulevard around 8:50 p.m. Sunday while people were inside.


Police say the shots were fired by 40-year-old Roderick Jones of Albany. He was stopped Monday evening near South Pearl Street and Morton Avenue. During the course of his arrest, officers found he had a loaded 9mm handgun.

Jones is charged with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and first-degree reckless endangerment. He's being held in the Albany County Jail without bail.

This is not Jones' first brush with the law. He was arrested in January for possession of a loaded handgun.
