TROY, N.Y. — After receiving reports of shots fired around 8:30 Tuesday night, Troy Police arrested Raysheem Washington more two hours later when they found a fully loaded .9 mm handgun with a high capacity magazine in his possession.

Police remained vigilant following the unsolved shots fired call until patrols narrowed their efforts on a group of three male subjects at approximately 10:45 p.m. The shots fired call occurred at Jefferson and Third streets and the suspects had been seen walking in the area just south of that location when patrols blanketed the premises.

Police said that within minutes of their arrival, a group matching the description of the suspects implicated in the investigation was reported to have been walking on Second Street in the area of Madison Street. Shortly after, police said two of the suspects were safely detained, but the third suspect ran from the scene.

Officer Charles Rockwell pursued the suspect, who police now identify as 25-year-old Raysheem Washington of Troy. A struggle ensued between the two, until backup arrived to assist in the arrest. As officers attempted to cuff Washington, he reached for his right side, where officers discovered and secured a fully loaded .9 mm handgun with 13 rounds of ammunition.
