Middle-Aged Woman Shot in Broad Daylight by 12-year-old Boy in Albany; Arrested and Charged as Woman Hopes to Survive

A 12-year-old boy in upstate New York has been taken into custody by the police for an alleged attempted murder.

A 48-year-old woman was shot in the forearm during the afternoon on Monday, May 13, according to a news release from the Albany Police Department (APD). The suspect, who is not being named due to his age, is accused of the crime.

Emergency medical personnel swiftly provided treatment to the victim on-site before safely transporting her to a nearby hospital. The APD shared this information in a news release, reassuring the public that her injuries were not life-threatening.

The police investigation concluded eight days after the shooting when the suspect was arrested. According to Det. Meghan Craft of the APD, the police currently believe that the suspect and victim did not know each other.

The suspect has been charged with second-degree attempted murder and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Last week, he appeared in Albany County Family Court (ACFC) for the first time and was sent to a non-secure detention facility.

An arrest has been made just one week following an incident where a 48-year-old woman sustained a gunshot wound to her arm. According to a spokesperson from the Albany Police Department, there is no indication that the suspect and victim had any prior connection.

The outcome of the boy’s trial remains uncertain, as the Albany County District Attorney’s Office has not provided any comments on the matter. The origin of the gun used in the incident and the reasons behind the boy being charged with attempted murder remain uncertain.
