Shooting prompts manhunt in the South End, Cuomo addresses state's prep for potential ebola cases, residents rallying to save their Stewart's

A part of South Pearl Street in Albany's South End neighborhood was closed Thursday as police hunted for a suspect in a shooting outside a pharmacy that morning (map). APD says the man shot was in critical condition. Police ended up surrounding a building and using tear gas and a robot to flush out a man who was taken into custody.

Commented Andrew Cuomo Thursday during a public briefing of the state's plans for handling potential ebola patients: "The anxiety is higher than the probability right now." Schenectady County officials followed their protocols for dealing with a potential case this week after a woman in a Schenectady reported that she wasn't feeling well and it was determined she had been to west Africa -- there was some confusion about which country she had been in, and after straightening it out officials determined ebola was not a risk in the case.
