CITY OF HUDSON – A 54-year-old City of Hudson man was arrested on Thursday following a domestic incident in which a gun was fired, Police Chief L. Edward Moore said on Friday.

Jonathan Jones, also known as “Smash,” was arrested and remanded to the Columbia County Jail without bail.

Police recovered a 9mm handgun, a shotgun and a .22 cal. rifle. As a convicted felon, Jones is not legally allowed to possess the firearms.

“I credit our officers and detectives as well as our other law enforcement team members with doing the extra work needed to fund these guns, identifying who is responsible, and removing them from our neighborhoods,” the chief said. “We have active investigations into recent gun violence and we will continue to press forward.”
