HUDSON — Police responded to reports of shots fired just after midnight Tuesday morning.

Two reports of gunshots in the area of the 200 block of State Street came in around 12:15 a.m., according to a statement from Hudson police.

“While police were interviewing possible witnesses and searching the area for evidence, the patrol on scene heard another gunshot in the area of the 300 block of Columbia Street,” according to Hudson police.

No injuries were reported related to either shooting, Hudson police said.

“We have had no reports to the hospital, the station or 911 that anyone was injured,” Hudson Police Chief Edward Moore said Tuesday.

Hudson police interviewed a 16-year-old male, who was located in the 300 block of Prison Alley.

“The subject was in possession of an illegal 9mm handgun,” according to Hudson police. “The serial numbers on the handgun were filed off and obliterated.”

The 16-year-old also had five rounds of ammunition for the gun, illegal narcotics and marijuana at the time of his arrest, Hudson police said.

The teen was arrested and charged with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a class C felony, third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a class D felony, seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a class A misdemeanor and unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation.

“I credit our night patrol for their quick work in locating the subject and getting another gun off the streets,” Moore said in a statement Tuesday. “Officers Mausolf, Strattman and Roberts did a great job. We do not know the origins of the pistol and have sent it to the lab for testing.”

The teen was arraigned in Columbia County Court and released to a third party. He is scheduled to reappear in county court Oct. 23 at 4 p.m.
