HUDSON — A Stottville man is facing four felony charges in connection with a shooting late Saturday afternoon in Hudson, according to Hudson Police Chief L. Edward Moore.

Terrell J. Starr, 18, was arrested by Hudson police detectives around 4:15 p.m. Monday afternoon and charged with four counts of first-degree reckless endangerment, a class D felony, Moore said.

Around 4:55 p.m. Saturday, Hudson police received numerous reports about shots fired in the vicinity of lower Union Street, police said. Uniformed patrols responded and conducted numerous neighborhood interviews, according to Moore.

With the assistance of residents, uniformed patrols located four shell casings and a live round on the 100 block of Cherry Alley and found no evidence of injury or property damage at that time, Moore said.

Detectives then checked numerous security cameras owned by residents and businesses in the neighborhood and were able to develop numerous leads as more evidence was collected, according to Hudson police.

After his arrest, Starr was issued an appearance ticket to return to Hudson City Court on May 19, Moore said.

“This investigation remains open, with detectives working to determine all events surrounding the shooting,” according to Moore.

“I commend our detectives and officers with their excellent work on this case,” Moore said. “Noteworthy is the tremendous support we received from the neighborhood. Citizens were very cooperative about sharing information and allowing us access to surveillance systems.”

Under the new bail reform laws the alleged shooter was given a ticket and told to come back for an arraignment, Moore said.

“When you are in charge of public safety, it’s hard to be supportive or even objective about bail reform when bullets are whizzing up and down the street.” Moore said.
