SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Police have now charged a third man in connection with the Friday, May 6 shooting on Paige Street in Schenectady.
Tyshawn Plowden, 28, of Schenectady, is facing one count each of second-degree murder, first-degree burglary and first-degree attempted robbery.
Last week, police charged two others in connection with the incident, including Arsheen Montgomery, 23, and Jahsiah Tucker, 19.
Montgomery faces a second degree murder charge. Tucker faces charges of first-degree burglary, and first-degree attempted robbery.
Police say Plowden, Tucker and Montgomery entered the home on Paige Street intending to rob the people living there.
An incident followed, which left 29-year-old Taquan Foreman dead.
Police believe Montgomery to be the individual who actually shot and killed Foreman inside the home, and that Foreman and the other people inside the home were unarmed.
Foreman was taken to Ellis Hospital in a private vehicle around 10:30 p.m. Friday with gunshot wounds to his torso.
Ellis Hospital did go into temporary lock down just as a precaution when Foreman was transported, which is procedure whenever a patient with a gunshot wound is transported to Ellis.
