2 teens arrested for shooting man with shotgun
Two Albany teens have been arrested after police say they shot a man with stolen shotguns.
Police say that on Sunday afternoon, they received an entering auto report about two shotguns that were stolen from a Robinhood Road vehicle.
Officers received a call later on Sunday about teens pulling on car handles in the Lullwater Road area and were able to get a description from that caller.
A car containing several teens was stopped on West Broad with a malfunctioning tag light. After stopping the vehicle, officers observed a blue shotgun shell casing inside the vehicle.
While that stop was happening it came over the radio that there was a shooting victim on West Broad Avenue: 18-year-old Tavaris Daniels.
Four blue shotgun shell casings were found on Melrose Drive, which is just two streets over from West Broad Avenue.
Daniels later told officers he had been texting one of the teens and had agreed to meet up. After arriving at the address, he saw two men approach the car with shotguns on each side and began shooting. He was able to drive away from the incident and receive medical treatment.
Two of the teens have been charged with aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during certain crimes and possession of a long gun.
