Allan Frierson (Colonie Police)
COLONIE, N.Y. – Colonie Police have arrested a man for allegedly lying to police about the vehicle used during a shooting at Shenanigan's club on Central Avenue that took place early Sunday morning.
Colonie Police say shots were fired from a vehicle driving by the club shortly after 1 a.m. The vehicle, a 2004 Jeep Liberty, was located, unoccupied, shortly after the shooting in the lot of the Lawrence Motel on Central Avenue. Police say the registered owner of the vehicle, 49-year-old Allan Frierson of Troy, used in the shooting, falsely reported the car stolen to Colonie Police and made false statements that hindered the investigation.
He has been charged with hindering prosecution, a felony, and falsely reporting an incident, a misdemeanor, and remanded to Albany County Correctional Facility without bail. Police say there is no indication that he was present during the shooting.
The victim in the shooting, 46-year-old Karl Richardson of Schenectady, is recovering at Albany Medical Center Hospital from a single gunshot to the lower leg. He was working as a bouncer at Shenanigan's when he was shot.
He was found lying in the parking lot with a bullet wound to the leg when police arrived.
According to authorities, the injury does not appear to be life threatening.
Detectives with the Colonie Police Department are investigating the incident, which include a report of a verbal altercation prior to the shooting. However, the employee may not have been the intended target of the shooting.
Colonie Police ask that anyone who witnessed the incident or that may have information about the incident to call 783-2754.
