TROY, N.Y. – Troy Police have made several arrests in connection to a shooting which occurred around 7:45 p.m. Tuesday when multiple shots were fired at and into a residence at 2416 Lavin Court in Troy.
According to authorities, Troy Police patrols successfully located a gold sedan in the area of Fifth Avenue and North Street. The vehicle had matched the broadcast description of the vehicle believed to be involved with the shooting.
One of the four occupants of the vehicle claimed they resided at 2416 Lavin Court, the exact address of the shots fired incident.
Upon questioning, a search warrant was obtained and executed on the vehicle. Police say they found marijuana and a fully loaded semi-automatic handgun.
Mychael Thomas, age 18 of 2416 Lavin Ct., Troy, Deandre Malloy, age 18, of Albany, Kenneth Koonce, age 22 of Troy and Ty-son Williams, age 17 of Albany, NY were arrested. All four have been charged with Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the 2nd Degree, Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the 4th Degree and Unlawful Possession of Marijuana.
All four suspects have been arraigned in Troy Police Court and were remanded to Rensselaer County Jail without bail.
The building was occupied at the time of the incident; however, no one was struck by gunfire. Captain John Cooney says there were multiple shots fired but that police cannot confirm the exact number of shots at this time.
According to Troy Code Enforcement, the first
floor apartment at 2416 Lavin Court did have a 5 day eviction notice for the occupants. The original evicition notice was for 7 days but that was changed after an
inspection by utility providers revealed problems with the HVAC system. There was also over occupancy and
prohibited changes to the apartment interior layout which led to the shorten eviction notice.
Detectives will continue to investigate the shooting and will determine if any connection exists between Thomas and the shooting incident.
