Violence in the City

At 1:16 a.m., Gossips received the following press release from HPD Chief Ed Moore:
At 8:33 p.m. the Hudson Police Department was notified that Columbia County 911 received two calls reporting a large fight at Bliss Towers, 41 N 2nd Street. Patrols responded and called out at the scene one minute later and found a 31 year old male with multiple stab wounds to his chest. He was transported by Greenport Rescue Squad to Albany Medical Center where, as of this hour, he is still undergoing emergency surgery. The victim is a resident of Hudson.
HPD Uniform officers and Detectives are currently on scene collecting evidence and conducting interviews.
HPD was assisted at the scene by units from the New York State Police and Columbia County Sheriff’s Office, as well as members of the Columbia County District Attorney’s Office.
“There were many people gathered when this violent attack occurred. We are asking for cooperation from anyone who may have witnessed this incident or might be able to provide helpful information. Please call HPD Detectives at (518) 828-3388.” Chief


  1. Once again, City Hall is silent. It is clearly easier to push a new housing project than it is to take care of the residents in the community that are struggling the most. Many thanks to Chief Moore and HPD for keeping us safe.

  2. I agree with Krystal. First priority should be to tend to the well-being of the citizens we already have, rather than to add new housing to a an un-balanced and distressed community.
