NEW WINDSOR – New Windsor Town Police say the person shot and killed at Knox Village Apartments at 835 Blooming Grove Turnpike was a 21-year-old woman.

A 20-year-old man, who was also shot, was transported to Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital for what were described as non-life-threatening injuries.

Those responsible for the incident fled the scene before police arrived.

Minutes after midnight on Saturday morning police were called to the scene for reports of shots fired and people screaming.

The identities of the victims are being withheld pending notification of relations.

“This tragic shooting has taken a young life from us far too soon and it not only affects the family of the victim but it impacts our community a whole,” said Police Chief Robert Doss. “We are committed to catching those responsible for this heinous crime and bringing them to justice.”

State Police are assisting New Windsor Police in the investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call New Windsor PD at 845-565-7000.
