COLONIE, N.Y. – Four people have been arrested after a report of shots fired in the Town of Colonie.

On Sunday around 9:22 p.m., officers received a call for four shots fired in the area of 60 Arcadia Court. Information had indicated that the shooter had fled in a vehicle and that a witness was following it on Central Avenue headed eastbound.

Patrol Officers from the Colonie Police and the Albany Police located the vehicle and stopped it in the area of Central Avenue and Colvin Avenue. Four people were taken into custody, without incident, and a handgun was located in the vehicle. The handgun is an Iver Johnson Arms .38 revolver that had one live round and four expended rounds in the cylinder.

The subsequent investigation revealed that one of the occupants of the vehicle, Terrence Rawlinson, had fired the four shots during a dispute with a resident of 60 Arcadia Court. Three bullets struck 60 Arcadia Court, two in the front siding and one that had entered the interior of the house through an open front door.

The fourth bullet has not been recovered.

There were two children and their mother inside the house when the bullets were fired. The intended victim and his cousin and brother were outside the house when the bullets were fired.

No one was struck and no injuries were reported.

The victim and shooter know each other and this stems from an on-going dispute, say police. The exact nature of the dispute and the relationship between the intended victim and shooter is still under investigation.

Rawlinson, Laura Bariso, Ibin Gordon, and Rodney Etienne all face charges related to the illegal handgun. Rawlinson faces additional charges for the actual shooting and child endangerment.  All four were arraigned in Colonie Justice Court Monday morning and were remanded without bail to the Albany County Correctional Facility pending their next court appearance.
