Police release details of fatal Erie Blvd/I-90 incident, arrest in Madison Ave stabbing, Troy trying to catch up on trash fee, darn good revenue growth

Erie Blvd/I-90 deaths
Albany police released additional details about the incident Sunday afternoon on Erie Blvd and I-90 in North Albany that left two people dead. APD says an investigation concluded that 22-year-old Larnell Kennedy shot 21-year-old Nahjayyah Daise, his former girlfriend, in the head as she drove them down Erie Street to Erie Boulevard, and he then fled up to I-90 where he was struck by a vehicle. Police say they're not sure why Kennedy shot Daise, or why he ran into the highway. Daise had been arrested in May for allegedly stabbing a man outside the OTB in Delmar.
