Gunshots fired at a Newport City apartment building on Thursday night

Gunshots fired at a Newport City apartment building on Thursday night followed a drug deal in which the drug recipient refused to pay $200. Newport Police arrested four people connected to the shooting but are still looking for the man who did the shooting. No one was struck by bullets fired at an occupied three-apartment building. A report by Chief Travis Brigham notes the shooter is believed to be a black male of average build and height. He has curly black hair and answers to “Ty” or “Tyler.” He was last seen wearing blue pants, a white hooded pullover, and dark-colored shoes with white soles. One of the people arrested is Gina Truszkowski, age 28, of North Troy, who allegedly aided Ty in leaving the scene of the shooting, outside 158 Third St.
