ALBANY - A Troy man is charged in connection with a weekend shooting in Albany.
Police say 23-year-old Jeffrey Walker shot a 29-year-old man in the torso while robbing him on Clinton Avenue early Sunday morning.
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.
