SCHENECTADY - A city man has been arrested in connection with a shooting earlier this month on Crane Street, police said.

No one was hurt in the incident, but the suspect is accused of firing a total of two shots "while there was a large group of people in the immediate area," according to police allegations filed in court received Monday.

Earlquan Emanuel, 20, of Nott Street, is accused of opening fire during a fight between two groups of people in the area of Crane Street and Sixth Avenue just after 7 p.m. June 15, according to police allegations.

Police arrested Emanuel Thursday evening. Police announced the arrest in a Facebook post Friday.

Emanuel faces two counts each of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and first-degree reckless endangerment, felonies, as well as misdemeanor criminal tampering. 

The tampering charge relates to accusations Emanuel took the firearm used in the incident from the scene.
