Two Teens Arrested In Albany Shooting
Today, police apprehended two teenagers and took them into custody in connection with a shooting death that occurred last month.
Tragedy struck on the violent streets of Albany when another young man was needlessly shot and killed on the streets.
Last month, over the Memorial Day weekend, a 29-year-old man was shot and killed around 3 o’clock in the morning in Pine Hills. Today, police have taken two teenagers into custody in connection with the shooting.
On May 30th, around 3 o’clock in the morning, police responded to shots fired call on Quail Street between Western Avenue and Elberton Place in Albany.
When police arrived at the location they discovered Schenectady resident, 29-year-old Devin McGlothin, suffering from gunshot wounds. Unfortunately, Mr. McGlothin died from his injuries at the scene.
Since that time, members of the Albany Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Unit have been working hard to solve the murder. Today their hard work paid off, they took two teenagers into custody and charged them with the shooting death of Mr. McGlothin.
According to Spectrum News, Albany Police apprehended 19-year-old Gentil Nshuti and charged him with second-degree Criminal Possession of a Weapon (Felony) and second-degree Murder (Felony).
Another teenager, 19-year-old Jihad Ali, was also arrested for the shooting death of Mr. McGlothin. Mr. Ali was charged with second-degree Murder. Both men appeared in the Albany Criminal Court where they were arraigned. They were then transported to the Albany County Jail.
We are hearing about way too many shooting deaths in the Capital Region. As a community, we must look for ways to resolve the issues that are causing young people to be so violent toward each other. We send our sincerest condolences to Mr. McGlotin’s family
