Man accused of shooting Albany woman through window arrested

Police said they arrested the man suspected of shooting a 60-year-old Albany woman through his own window.

Raheem Hines, 44, of Albany, was arrested Monday, May 16, authorities say.

Investigators say that at the time of his arrest, Hines had a loaded 9mm handgun, Albany police said.

His capture came nearly a week after the victim was found with a gunshot wound to his abdomen inside his home on Partridge Street near Madison Avenue.

She was taken to Albany Medical Center Hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Investigators said Hines entered the woman’s porch around 4:45 a.m. and fired a gun through a window, hitting her.

James Scott, a neighbor of the victim, posted home security footage on Facebook which he said captured the entire incident.

He said the suspect attempted to steal his motorcycle when he was confronted by the victim.

Video shows the suspect walking onto the woman’s porch and pointing a gun at her house before firing a single shot. We can then see him lingering for a moment before walking away and talking to each other.

“Fortunately the gun jammed and he couldn’t fire again,” Scott said.

Police said they found Hines near North Allen and Chestnut streets in Albany.

A woman who was with him at the time, Tanisha Hines, 43, of Albany, was also arrested and charged with criminal possession of a weapon.

Both were arraigned Monday in Albany Criminal Court.

Mr. Hines was being held in the Albany County Jail.
