Saturday's shooting of a City of Poughkeepsie man marked the fourth time the man had been shot in the same apartment complex in six years.

Records reveal the 35-year-old victim was first shot in a dispute at Tubman Terrace in May 2000, taking rounds from a 9mm pistol in his arm, thigh, foot and groin. In August 2002, the man was shot once in the back. In November 2002, he was shot once in the arm. And Saturday, the man suffered multiple gunshot wounds again. All four shootings happened in front of buildings in the housing complex or in the parking lot.

The man's name was not officially released by police. The Journal does not typically name the victims of violent crime. The victim remained in critical condition Monday at Saint Francis Hospital in the Town of Poughkeepsie, Detective Sgt. Matthew Clark said.

Police said they don't know what led to the shooting, and an investigation is continuing.

Local resident charged

Police made an arrest in the latest shooting within an hour Saturday, charging 33-year-old David J. Brooks with first-degree assault.

Brooks, who also lives in the city, has a record dating to 1994 when he was convicted of felony weapons possession. He was convicted of felony drug possession in 1998 and attempted felony drug possession in 2001.

Clark said police believe the victim, a former resident of Tubman Terrace, no longer lives there.

Tubman Terrace is a public housing complex partly owned by the Poughkeepsie United Methodist Church. A message left Monday with the Poughkeepsie Housing Authority was not returned. Leaders at the United Methodist Church could not be reached.


Tought man, but:

QUIT GOING THERE!
 
All four shootings happened in front of buildings in the housing complex or in the parking lot.

Would this happen to be a PUBLIC housing complex?

He was convicted of felony drug possession in 1998 and attempted felony drug possession in 2001.

For all those in the other thread heralding the benefits of drugs.

Note to the UMC...The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
 
Yea, I think that there are some things that happen that keeps me from going back.

Like I get crappy service when I'm eating, I won't go back. I have a feeling that I get shot, you're not going to see me around there anymore.

Let alone 3 more times (that we know of)!

Was a Public Housing Project. He'd have to pay rent to leave. Thus the motive to stay. No ability to vote with your feet.

Capitalism == Choice == Morally Right!
Socialism == Do What We Tell You == Suffer and Like it

I must have missed that. Who was doing that? I recall several people offering opinions that the standard government prescribed "cure" was a hell of a lot worse than the problem it was supposed to fix, but somehow never quite did.

I'll sing the benefits of drugs. Hell, I love my coffee. :D
 
Hmmm...methinks that maybe he's trying to break in to someone else's drug running territory??? That or he should buy a bloody lottery ticket!! Yikes!
 
I've only been here since the mid-80's, so it wasn't that long ago. Maybe the fact that my old secretary was a life-long "Townie" helps. Did he escape again? No, that's right; last I heard he was working as a longshoreman for MassPort. Did he get busted again? Does Howie Carr know? [wink]

Then you know part of his history. He's been shot multiple times on multiple occassions, but survived them all. I guess you'd say he's lucky, but I don't know if that's the correct word for it.
