UPDATE: Hit and run turns into shootout

Jubrey's vehicle then crashed into a Colonie police vehicle and stopped. Police took him into custody where he was also allegedly found to be in possession of a large survival knife. Winn said Jubrey was unconscious when he was taken to Albany Medical Center but was reported to be in stable condition before going into surgery.

According to Winn, Jubrey had been arrested in 2006 when he was 16 for stealing firearms.

Jubrey's stepfather was also transported to Albany Medical Hospital to be treated for his hand wound. Winn said the father did try and refuse any medical treatment. The Colonie police officer, a six-year veteran, who fired his weapon, was transported to Albany Memorial Hospital to be treated for shock and stress type symptoms. Though it was his first time firing his weapon, Winn said it is protocol after an incident such as this to undergo treatment. The deputy from the Columbia County Sherriff's Department was taken to the Colonie Police Department to give his statement.

Winn said the investigation is still ongoing with multiple forensic officers at the scene. There will be a press conference with more information tomorrow afternoon, Winn said, so check back for more updates.


According to New York State Police Troop K, Jubrey was involved in making illegal drugs out of a tent on the Austerliz campgrounds in Columbia County.

The tent was discovered after a trooper running a No Seat belt traffic stop and picked up a strong scent of chemicals. He then discovered chemicals and paraphernalia associated with making illegal drugs.

The investigation revealed Jubrey and another camper had been on the campgrounds since Monday, according to the release. The materials were disposed of after Jubrey was involved in the hit-and-run incident into dumpsters behind an apartment building in the Town of Ghent.
