One dies after Livingston Park shooting

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Police confirm one man has died after a shooting at Livingston Park in Albany on Wednesday.

The shooting occurred at the basketball courts at North Lake Avenue and 3rd Street. Three men were shot, according to police.

All three victims were taken to Albany Medical Center. Albany police said a 21 year old died Wednesday night. The other two victims, ages 23 and 28, remain in the hospital. They are in stable condition.

A young boy at the scene said he was playing basketball when he heard shots and ran away. A woman at the scene was visibly upset. She said one of the victims was her daughter’s father.

Police quickly shut down the park and set up a large perimeter with crime tape. Witnesses said the incident started over an argument, though police could not confirm that information.

“These are the types of things we do not want happening in these neighborhoods, and everybody needs to come together with information,” Albany Police Officer Steve Smith said.
