SCHENECTADY – City police Thursday identified the victim of Wednesday’s fatal shooting in Schenectady, as they continued to ask for anyone with information to contact investigators.
Matteo Henderson, 26, was shot and killed at about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday afternoon in the area of Odell Street and Brandywine Avenue, police said.

Schenectady detectives and members of the Crime Scene Unit scoured the area Wednesday afternoon, with officers clearing the site by 3:20 p.m.
