A third man has now been charged in connection with the May 6 home invasion killing of a Brooklyn man on Paige Street.
Tyshawn L. Plowden, 28, of Hulett Street, now faces one count each of second-degree murder, first-degree burglary and first-degree attempted robbery.
Plowden is accused of participating in the home invasion at 410 Paige St. just after 10:30 p.m. May 6 that ended in the death of 29-year-old Taquan Foreman inside.
Plowden is accused of intending to commit a burglary when another participant caused Foreman’s death.
Police last week accused 23-year-old Arsheen Montgomery of being the shooter, charging Montgomery with second-degree murder.
Paperwork filed in Montgomery’s case specifically accused Montgomery as firing and killing Foreman.
Police had previously charged Montgomery with hindering prosecution in the case.
Also charged is 19-year-old Schenectady resident Jahsiah Tucker. Tucker faces one count each of first-degree burglary and first-degree attempted robbery. Tucker does not face a murder count.
Foreman died at Ellis Hospital that night after being brought there by a private vehicle.
Prosecutor Peter Willis of the Schenectady County District Attorney’s Office called the incident a home invasion.
Authorities believe the three men went to the residence intending to rob the people there. A struggle involving Foreman took place and Foreman was shot and killed, prosecutor Peter Willis said last week.
Willis described Foreman as a friend of one of the residents of the apartment. He also said that authorities believe that Foreman and the others inside the apartment were unarmed.
Willis did not identify last week what the invaders sought, but he did say that a search of the residence uncovered some drugs.
Foreman’s mother, Charlotte Foreman, has recalled her son as a loving and humorous person. He loved basketball, boxing and music. She said he worked in construction and other jobs.
Told of Montgomery’s arrest last week, she called it a relief. She also said she wants to know exactly how and why her son died.
