No Shooting Related Charges for Cohoes Man in Home Invasion

A Cohoes man who allegedly shot and killed a would-be intruder on Sunday Morning is now facing criminal charges.

Shawn Rogowski is arraigned in Cohoes City Court on a misdemeanor charge of child endangering, but no charges are filed in connection with shooting the still unidentified intruder.

Authorities say the child endangerment charge stems from an investigation that revealed Rogowski fired the shotgun in the direction of his girlfriend's 11 month old baby, who was sleeping. 

Court documents also say police found a large amount of cash in the second floor apartment, along with marijuana and drug paraphernalia consistent with a large scale operation.
