On June 18, 2019, just before noon, the City of Hudson Police Department (HPD) received a transferred 911 call from Columbia County 911. Witnesses and callers called to report “shots fired” on the 500 block of State Street. HPD responded to the scene immediately. The New York State Police and the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office also responded to assist.
The crime scene was quickly secured. During the criminal investigation shell cases were recovered and collected from the street. One of the bullets were located and collected from the scene. That projectile struck a parked unoccupied school bus that was parked on the 500 block of State Street. No injuries were reported from the shooting.
A subject was interviewed by detectives and stated that the gunman was actually trying to shoot at him. This incident appears to have stemmed from an argument. Search warrants were applied and executed for Lee’s car and his listed home address on the 200 block of State Street. Over 125 bags of heroin were seized from LEE’s car. Other evidence was collected, including ammunition and a box for a .380 caliber pistol.
LEE was later located on the 300 block of Columbia Street at 9:09pm and arrested by HPD Detectives.
LEE was arraigned in the City of Hudson Court in front of Judge Brian Herman. Judge Herman set bail at $5000.00 cash/bond returnable on 6/19/19 at 8:30am. A preliminary hearing was scheduled for Monday the 24th of June at 3:00pm.
The Columbia County District Attorney’s Office, New York State Police and the Columbia County Sheriff’s Department assisted HPD with this investigation.
