NEWBURGH – A Newburgh man is under arrest on charges of assault in a January 7 early morning shooting near 42 Liberty Street at the Untouchables Bar. The victim, who was shot in the leg, was transported to St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital Newburgh campus where police said he was uncooperative.  Tyshuon Patterson, 33, was also charged with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon.
On Thursday, February 8 at 5:30 in the morning, a Newburg SWAT team executed a no-knock search warrant on apartments at 101 Overlook Place. A handgun and other pieces of evidence were recovered.
The shooting triggered the Newburgh City Police Shot Spotter program with investigators immediately jumping into action.
The case was investigated by the grant-funded Non-Fatal Shooting Task Force headed by a Newburgh city detective, Orange County District Attorney investigator and a dedicated crime analyst assisted by a city detective.
