GUILDERLAND, N.Y. (NEWS10) — A Watervliet man is facing charges after he allegedly had a loaded gun inside Crossgates Mall. His arrest comes a few days after a teenager was found with a loaded gun outside the mall on Saturday.

The 19-year old was arrested and charged with Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Second Degree and Criminal Possession of a Weapon in a Restricted Location, both felonies. The Albany County Sheriff’s Office K9 unit assisted with the investigation.
Lunday IV was arraigned and released to probation. He is due back in court at a later date.
