On Saturday, June 8, the New York State Police from the Rhinebeck barracks arrested Jeffrey P. Tompkins, 64, of Hyde Park, for three counts of Reckless Endangerment in the first degree, a class D felony.
On that day at approximately 6:40 p.m., troopers were dispatched by Dutchess County 911 to Pinebrook Drive in the town of Hyde Park for a report of gunfire. Upon arrival, troopers report that they found an armed subject, later identified as Tompkins, and determined that he was the source of the gun shots in his apartment. Investigation found a domestic incident had occurred in which Tompkins fired three rounds from a Smith and Wesson 9MM shield semi-automatic pistol into an apartment wall. Tompkins surrendered without further incident.
