Neighbor Alayne Kaiser saw the suspect after he knocked on her front door, she told Mid-Hudson News.

“He was at my door and walked across the street to that Ford,” Kaiser said. “He went around to the back and crouched down for about five to 10 minutes – didn’t move a muscle – picks up, I guess he heard the police, hid the gun – I saw him hide the gun. He walked 120 feet then laid down on the ground.”

Kaiser identified the alleged shooter as “George.”

State Police are expected to release details of the shooting later.
