TIVOLI — A man was arrested in the town of Catskill by Dutchess County authorities on Wednesday following a shooting in Tivoli on Tuesday night, according to the Greene County Sheriff’s Department.

The suspect’s name and the name of the victim have not been released by police at this time.

Greene County Sheriff Peter Kusminsky said Wednesday that his department located a vehicle that matched a description from the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office parked at a residence on Vedder Mountain Road. The Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office did the rest.

“We called them and the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office drove up here and made the arrest themselves,” Kusminsky said. “All we did was assist them.”

Police responded Tuesday night around 8:35 p.m. to a reported shooting on Clay Hill Road in the village of Tivoli in Dutchess County.

An alert went out to police agencies in Columbia and Greene counties to be on the lookout for a suspect in the shooting, the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office said.

The suspect was described in police scanner reports as a black male between the ages of 17 and 22.

The man taken into custody on Vedder Mountain Road by the Greene County Sheriff’s Office was turned over to the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office, according to Greene County Undersheriff Adam Brainard.

Further details have not been made available.
