DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -  Poughkeepsie police arrested a 22-year-old city man Monday with a stolen handgun shortly after another man was shot in the foot on Mill Street, according to the City of Poughkeepsie Police.

A short time later, officers found Alvin Kiggundu, 22, of Poughkeepsie, was found in possession of a stolen 9mm handgun. He was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and felony criminal possession of stolen property, Clark said.
