TROY, N.Y. – Police say the owners of a Troy bar are not being cooperative after a shooting took place inside on Sunday.
“He was rushed by private vehicle to Saint Mary’s Hospital and was treated,” Troy Police Captain Dan DeWolf said. “He’s since been released. He’s recovering well.”
The man was taken to the hospital by private vehicle because authorities said they weren’t alerted to the shooting for at least an hour after it happened.
Police said the party was a “clean-up” party. Between 20 and 30 people were in attendance, including the co-owner Joe Glick.
“They’ve been pretty cooperative in the investigation except for Mr. Glick who was also present when this occurred,” DeWolf said. “He has since asked for a lawyer and hasn’t cooperated much with the investigation.”
A sign on the door of the Fourth Street bar reads the following:
“Kokopelli’s closed as a result of an incident that occurred in January 2014 in which the Troy Police Department brutally beat a patron for no reason…Owners Barry and Joe Glick spoke out against the Troy Police Department…They felt they have been targeted and harassed.”
“It’s been reviewed by us. It’s been reviewed by a multitude of people,” DeWolf said. “It just isn’t the case.”
NEWS10 reached out to both Barry and Joe Glick for comment, but they declined.
