Crossgates Mall

A new interactive adventure located in Crossgates Mall by Regal Cinemas 18 opens.

Tasheem Maeweather, accused of firing a gun in Crossgates in November, was sentenced today in Albany County Court to nine years in state prison for violating the terms of his probation on an earlier felony drug charge. 

Maeweather is the 20-year-old Albany man accused of shutting down Crossgates Mall by firing a gun inside the mall on Nov. 12. He was indicted by a grand jury on four felony charges and pleaded “not guilty” to all charges on Monday before Judge Roger D. McDonough in Albany County Supreme Court.
