Schenectady police investigate double shooting

By MARK O'BRIEN

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. -- Police are investigating a double shooting along Hulett St. near the intersection with Albany St.

Officers arrived on the scene around 8:05 p.m. and found two men lying on the ground with at least one gunshot wound to the upper torso of each man.  They were both taken to Ellis Hospital with unknown injuries and unknown conditions.

Police said while it is early in the investigation, they believed some sort of argument happened before the shooting.

"We heard that there was a large group of people on the street at the time," said Sgt. Luciano Savoia.  "Upon our arrival, we did stop and talk to people, and they've been transported to our police station."

Sgt. Savoia said the number of people taken to the station was at least five or six.  He said police do not believe this was a random act of violence, and even though they had not found the weapon yet, they do not believe a shooter might still be at large.

Still, police did ask for the public's help in tracking down any eyewitness accounts or information about what may have led up to the shooting.  Those with any information were asked to call Schenectady Police.
