HUDSON – A 19-year-old man was killed in a shooting on Fairview Avenue on Sunday night.

The shooting happened in the vicinity of 20 Fairview Ave. at about 8:30 p.m. near the Stewart's Shop at the intersection of Green Street, Hudson Police Chief L. Edward Moore said at the scene. 

The victim, who police did not identify and believe was from Hudson, was brought to Columbia Memorial Hospital where he later died, Moore said. 

 “We’re still interviewing neighbors and residents,” Moore said at 9:15 p.m.  Sunday. “State police will be here to process the scene shortly.”

Hudson police taped off the Stewart’s Shop parking lot where many customers were enjoying 50 cent ice cream cones for Father’s Day. Fairview Avenue was closed to traffic after the shooting between Green Street and Storm Avenue.  

An investigation is underway and police have not determined what led to the shooting, Moore said. 

Police would not release any information regarding possible suspects or arrests in connection with the shooting. 

Police do not have any information linking Sunday night's incident to last summer’s shootings that left one man killed and four adults and two children wounded. 

Police remained at the scene investigating leads at 9:30 p.m.  Members of the Columbia County District Attorney’s Office, state police, and Columbia County Sheriff’s Office were assisting at the scene.  

“We’re bringing a lot of assets here,” Moore said.
