Walker is charged with attempted murder, robbery and criminal possession of a weapon. He was sent to Albany County Jail.

The victim is expected to survive.

Walker was arrested one month ago in Watervliet. A chase in Troy ended with a standoff at Fenimore Trace Apartments.

At that time, Walker was already wanted for felony criminal mischief and a bench warrant.

After the standoff, he was additionally charged with reckless endangerment.
