A man wanted on a warrant for murder was nabbed at a City of Newburgh apartment after running inside the occupied dwelling.

The incident began around 9:50 a.m., Tuesday, March 12, when the City of Newburgh Police received a call that a man had taken a gun from a vehicle and ran inside an apartment at the Mullins Apartment complex on Walsh Road, said City of Newburgh Police Lt. Det. Lt. Joseph Burns.

Officers from the City of Newburgh, Town of New Windsor, and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene and set up a perimeter around the apartment, Burns said.

A short time later a female and child ran from the apartment and told officers that a man and another small child were still inside.
