ALBANY, N.Y. -- Tuesday marked one year since the shooting death of UAlbany student Richard Bailey.
The 22-year-old was shot on Oct. 20, 2008 as he walked home from a friend's house in the Pine Hills neighborhood.
Three teens were arrested last month in connection with the shooting.
Accused shooter Devon Callicut, 19, has pleaded not guilty to first- and second-degree murder, attempted robbery and criminal possession of a weapon. King Jamell Modest, 17, and Ricardo Caldwell, 18, have pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and attempted robbery.
Bailey was a senior at UAlbany, majoring in Sociology with a minor in Criminal Justice. He wanted to become a New York City police officer like his father. His parents accepted his college degree in December.
Deputy Chief Steven Krokoff released the following statement on Tuesday:
Today marks the one year anniversary of Richard Bailey's murder and our thoughts and prayers are still with his entire family on this difficult day. While his senseless death was tragic it is our sincere hope that his family finds some relief in the fact that the persons responsible for his murder were arrested and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Our entire department understands the impact that a crime like this has on the entire community and we continue to be committed to making every neighborhood in our city safe for our residents.
