Kingston Man Pointed Shotgun at Group at Local School, Police Say
A Hudson Valley man is accused of chasing and pointing a shotgun at a number of people at a local elementary school.
On Friday, Saugerties police detectives arrested 22-year-old Michael L. Belgrave of Kingston for criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a weapon on school grounds, both felonies.
Around 6 p.m. on Nov. 3, officers responded to a 911 call for a reported disturbance at the Riccardi Elementary School in Glasco. At that time, officers established that there had been an altercation between a group of people and during the altercation, Belgrave retrieved a shotgun from a vehicle parked on school property, gave chase after the group while pointing the shotgun at the group and fled the scene before officers arrived, police say. No injuries were reported.
According to police, the investigation was hampered by the individuals involved who refused to cooperate with authorities. Police detectives continued to work on the case and eventually were able to allege Belgrave was the person with the shotgun.
The shotgun was recovered by detectives and was found to have a defaced serial number, police say.
Belgrave was remanded to Ulster County Jail in lieu of $15,000 cash bail or $30,000 bond.
