The shooter in Thursday night’s Union Street killing lured his victim from the apartment, then fired at him with a shotgun, police said. He then drove away. When the incident was over, the shooter was dead in Niskayuna of a self-inflicted shotgun blast to the head. Two Niskayuna police officers fired five shots, not knowing if the blast was meant for them or others. But exactly what caused such rage remained unknown, police said. The ...

Thank God it was Niskayuna cops that were involved in the shooting, otherwise we would have a dozen articles by "Hatchet Job" Moore on how the Sch'dy Police were not justified in returning fire.

Thank God it was the Niskayuna Police that fired on the truck because if it were the Sch'dy Police we would have to endure countless stories filled with inaccuracies and outright lies by Kathleen "Hatchet Job" Moore.

Ok. So apparently the Niskayuna Police actually do more than just give out speeding tickets to people. What a surprise.

What an idiotic comment asmithee.

How nice though, the cops giving credit to the dispatcher.

No one will ever know the cause and reasons behind Anthony Marko's Death. But i can honestly say, Marko was a good guy. he was always there for people and a genuine person. who did not deserve what so ever what got handed to him. I don't appreciate the things being said about him. We want to remember him on good terms and i refuse to respond to this nonsense being said about him. its absolutely absurd. I new him as a wonderful guy, with a good heart, and a good head on his shoulders. he did do what he had to do to get by in life and he loves his kids more then anything. So i refuse to listen to anything bad that is being said about him its all not necessary. Marko I'll Always have you in my heart! love you always! R.I.P hun~!

I was visiting my then boyfriend very near to this shooting and heard the shots and went out since I was leaving to go home, which is outside of Schenectady and did not expect to see what I saw. How terribly sad for all the friends and family.

What an example of how God works in all our lives and how something like this can even impact the lives of people that are not immediately involved. Seeing that young man laying there was a sad traumatic incident for me and I felt so unsafe and could not wait to go home. I did not wait to find out the outcome. I did not want to talk to anyone either. I just wanted to leave not knowing what brought this on. I thought it was another drive by shooting in a nice area of Schenectady. I felt so unsafe there at that time. When I think of these 2 young men and their families and how horrible this is for them. The things being said on both sides are just horrible. Concentrate on the lives lost and the children growing without their father. Families and friends will be mourning and do not need to hear who did what.

This will be one Schenectady shooting that will be in my thoughts forever. I will be thinking of all those involved and their pain and I pray that God watch over everyone involved.

Oddly enough I left to go home and my so called boyfriend ended up meeting up with another woman nearby and so ended our relationship. This has changed our lives as well -- one persons decision to act out his revenge for whatever reason he felt necessary. I will never forget the names of these two young men. It's just funny how God works in our lives. I do not regret what direction my life has taken, but the memory of the death of these young men will live in my memory forever.

My prayers go out to all the families and friends. God bless you all!
