On March 9th of this year, Troy police officers were dispatched to 339 3rd Street for a stabbing. The victim Donald Gooding, 32 of Troy, died of his injuries that day. 

Patrol officers and detectives were able to gather enough evidence to arrest Xavier Parker, 18 of Brewster, on charges of 1st and 2nd degree manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon on Friday.
