ALBANY, N.Y. -- "It's two too many," said Albany Police Chief Steven Krokoff.
Police were still on the scene Friday of Albany's second homicide of the year. They said Alex Duncan, 35, died after being brought to Albany Medical Center Thursday night. Police said he was found shot in the mid-section outside a barber shop on Ontario Street.
"Not really sure of the specific details, but right now, we're dealing with a homicide that was in connection with a robbery," said Albany Police Spokesperson Steven Smith.
Shortly after officers responded, Smith said they stopped two suspects. One, 23-year-old Bernard White, he said has since been charged with murder and robbery. The other, 35-year-old Antwan Uptegrow, Smith said, is being held on a parole warrant.
"This investigation is going to move forward. We still have a lot of work to do. Anybody with information is urged to call the Albany Police Detectives Division," said Smith.
Detectives are still working this case, but Chief Krokoff hopes it's the last homicide they'll handle this year.
"Every year, I'm hoping to get out with zero. That's unfortunate. But now my goal is hopefully to get out with only two this year," said Krokoff.
