HUDSON — One person is dead and a second is in critical condition after a city shooting Saturday night, Hudson Police Chief Edward Moore said.
Police responded to reports of a shooting at the Hudson Terrace Apartments on Front Street just before 11 p.m. Saturday. At about the same time, Hudson Police were notified that two shooting victims arrived at the Columbia Memorial Hospital Emergency Room, Moore said.
Both shooting victims were male and one died, he said, adding the second victim is in critical condition.
Hudson Police, State Police and the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office deputies were on the scene and police tape surrounded all parking lots at the apartment complex Saturday night while police investigated the scene with flashlights. Police are concentrating on the parking lot between the complex’s building 6 and the Columbia County Chamber of Commerce building.
The hospital’s emergency room parking lot and entrance was on police locked down Saturday night, as they investigated the car that the shooting victims were reported to have arrived at the hospital in, police said.
Several dozen police officers were at both locations in Hudson Saturday night, as they continue to investigate.
