From Hudson Police:
Press Release – Shooting City of Hudson
At 9:24pm the Hudson City Police received a report of gunshots fired in the area of North 5th Street between Columbia and State Streets, in front of the D&D Deli. About 4 minutes later we received a call from Columbia Memorial Hospital that they were treating a male subject with a gunshot wound who had arrived there in a private vehicle.
DI-QUANN S. POWELL, AKA “Da Da” age 22, of N 2nd Street, Hudson was identified as the victim. He was airlifted to Albany Medical Center where he is undergoing emergency surgery now. He was shot once in the midsection/hip.
A suspect in the shooting was identified as a bearded black male, wearing a black hoodie sweatshirt and glasses fled the immediate area on foot.
HPD Detectives and Officers canvassed the neighborhood and have been interviewing people throughout the night. The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office as well as officers from the Greenport and Philmont Police Departments responded to the scene. Investigators from the New York State Police were processing the crime scene at the time of this release.
On 06/14/17 DI-QUANN “Da Da” POWELL was being sought for outstanding warrants (Endangering the Welfare of a Child, Attempted Assault) and questioning regarding a 05/01/17 shooting on State Street when he fled from Hudson Police . He was subsequently charged with Resisting Arrest and Assault 2nd after breaking a Detective’s foot during the arrest. POWELL was currently free after posting $1000 bail in Hudson City Court in relation to those charges.
More recently, on 08/23/17 POWELL was arrested on a fugitive from justice warrant stemming from charges in Upper Saddle River New Jersey involving the unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
“This shooting is 100 percent linked to the ongoing violence between two rival groups that started in May of this year.” Chief Moore
