Man shot and killed in Troy, Raucci report leaked, the next Troy police chief, early tick season

Troy police say a man was shot and killed at the Corliss Park Apartments yesterday. They say the suspect is still on the loose. For a while yesterday afternoon police thought the suspect was in an apartment at the complex and the department's Emergency Response Team was called to surround the building. It turned out the only person inside was an elderly woman who police say is the suspect's grandmother. [Troy Record] [TU] [Fox23] [YNN] [WTEN] [WNYT]
