Two people shot in attempted Glens Falls break-in
Two people were shot in Glens Falls, following what police are calling an attempted home invasion.
The two people shot were breaking into the home when a third person who lived there shot them, a city spokesperson said. The two remained at Albany Medical Center Thursday night, with one in critical condition.
A part of Cherry Street was also taped off as part of the investigation.
Glens Falls Police and New York State Police were interviewing the alleged shooter and trying to determine what crimes were committed.
All three of the people involved are from the Glens Falls and Hudson Falls area, police said.
Local attorney Tucker Stanclift is representing the person suspected of firing the gun. He described a case of self defense as the break-in unfolded. He did not provide NewsChannel 13 with the identity of his client.
No one has been charged at this time.
