A Schenectady man who is wanted for questioning in a February shooting and stabbed a man in 2012 is in custody in connection with this morning’s triple shooting.

Three men, including two 22 year olds and one 20 year old, were shot shortly after 1 a.m. Tuesday inside 10 Shirley Dr., according to police.

All three are in stable condition at Albany Medical Center and are being questioned by police, according to Sgt. Matt Dearing.

One of the men, Pharoah J. Nisby, 22, of Schenectady, is in custody for the shooting, Dearing said. He said Nisby sustained two gunshot wounds to the arm and two in the leg.

None of the victims, including Nisby, have been charged as of now.

Nisby is a person of interest in a shooting on Crane Street in February that sent Marvin Sanchez, 30, to Albany Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. Sanchez survived the shooting, according to Dearing.

Nisby went to prison in April 2012 for stabbing a man near his Webster Street residence and served 2 ½ years in prison.

The area of Shirley Drive will be closed to traffic for most of the day. The home is located off State Street in the Woodlawn neighborhood by the Niskayuna town line and near Bumpy's Polar Freeze..
