Schenectady clock tower lights up orange for gun violence awareness

Local News

Friday night, Schenectady City Hall’s clock tower will light up orange for National Gun Violence Awareness.

The city saw a fatal homicide earlier this year that’s still unsolved. Before that, it hadn’t seen a fatal shooting in almost a year-and-a-half. 

While gun-homicide is sparse, gun-violence isn’t. Sergeant Nick Mannix with the Schenectady Police Department says he’s seen an uptick in gun crime.
