At 1:45 p.m., 30-year-old Edwin Villalongo, of State Street, suffered a gunshot wound to his back. He was able to drive to 929 Emmett St. where he asked the residents to call the police. Villalongo was transported to Albany Medical Center by the Schenectady Fire Department. He was still being evaluated tonight at the hospital, a spokeswoman said.
