Albany police arrested a 19-year-old city resident Wednesday for allegedly possessing a loaded handgun on Judson Street.

At about 5:50 p.m., police observed a man throwing litter onto the sidewalk while he was walking on Judson Street. As officers approached in order to cite him for littering in a public place, he fled and led officers on a brief foot chase. During the course of the foot chase, Shaquelle Owens allegedly discarded a loaded .357-caliber handgun before being arrested.

Owens was charged with felony criminal possession of a weapon and cited for littering in a public place under the city ordinances.

He was arraigned in the Albany City Criminal Court and sent to the Albany County Jail.
