Police are investigating the shooting death of a man inside a Glen Avenue apartment on Thursday.
Police are characterizing the death of Alexander Martuscello, 23, of 56 Glen Ave., as a murder. 
Suspects were arrested Thursday afternoon and a press conference is planned for 11 a.m. Friday morning, Police Chief Greg Culick said.
Police responded to 56 Glen Ave. at about 3 a.m. for a report of a man down. They arrived to find Martuscello dead inside, police spokesman Lt. Thomas Nethaway said.
The investigation is continuing.
"It's active," Nethaway said early Thursday. "We're following up on some leads."
Amsterdam police have requested help from state police in Fonda. District Attorney Kelli McCoski is assisting.
