Teen Charged With Possessing Loaded Handgun

On June 30, 2014 at 11:50 p.m., City of Poughkeepsie 911 received multiple calls reporting shots fired and a shooting in the area of the VFW and Violet Avenue in the Town of Poughkeepsie. City 911 notified the Town of Poughkeepsie Police who responded, and several City Police units began responding towards that area as suspects, all described as being teenage black males, had been reported fleeing on foot down towards North Clinton Street.
Several city officers stopped three subjects in the area of 113 N. Clinton St. who matched that description. Two stopped and one fled on foot. After a brief foot pursuit and after being tasered that subject, a 15-year-old city resident, was found to be in possession of a loaded 380 caliber handgun. This subject is being held pending a hearing in Family Court for possession of a loaded handgun.
