Update: Two Charged in Poughkeepsie Hotel Shooting

On Tuesday, Town of Poughkeepsie Police responded to a shooting that took place at the Poughkeepsie Inn on South Road.

Two suspects were detained after a brief area search. Both were subsequently charged with five counts of robbery in the first degree, all felonies.
The initial investigation revealed that the defendants were known to the victim and witnesses, and the shooting was not an act of random violence.
