A 15-year-old teen has been charged with attempted murder in the shooting of two men in broad daylight in the City of Poughkeepsie.

The teen, a City of Poughkeepsie resident, was arrested around 2 p.m. Tuesday by the City of Poughkeepsie Police and is being held in a detention center without bail, said Det. Lt. Matt Clark.

The shootings took place around 3:23 p.m. Monday, Feb. 4, in the area of S. Cherry and Church streets, Clark said.

When officers arrived on scene they found a 28-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the head. At the same time, Vassar Hospital called reporting that another gunshot victim, a 41-year-old man, had been brought to the hospital by private vehicle.

The 41-year-old victim suffered a non-life threatening gunshot wound to the leg. He was walking down the sidewalk and was an innocent bystander, Clark said.

The 28-year-old victim suffered a life-threatening gunshot wound to the head. He is in critical condition in the ICU on life support, he added.

Anyone with information on this shooting is asked to call the City of Poughkeepsie Police at 845-451-7577.
