The Week In Review-The Weekend Ahead

Conditions of Unrest Continue in City of Newburgh

An Orange County SWAT Team has arrived, along with multiple other police units.

In a Facebook post, Mayor Torrence Harvey announced “THE ORANGE COUNTY SWAT TEAM IS HERE. PLEASE GO HOME (assuming he was talking to people on the streets). Fire in the street is said to be moving closer to buildings. The situation continues to be ugly, dangerous, and frightening to residents who are not involved, while others continued to demand that the camcorder coverage be released.

After a suspect was stopped for questioning and reportedly reached for a gun and shot a City of Newburgh Police officer, and was then killed, and Councilman Omari Shakur claimed the man who was killed had no weapon……….public wants to see police helmet cam results. Unrest has continued throughout the evening. Montefiore St. Luke’s Hospital was put on lockdown, an observer was taken in for questioning.  Police came in from all around to assist, and Orange and Rockland Fire posted the warning pictured above, just before 1 am.
