Four vehicles struck by gunfire in Schenectady

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Police are investigating after shots were fired at the intersection of Albany Street and Backus Street.

The incident occurred just before 2 p.m. Monday. Police say they still don’t know if there was a single gunman or multiple suspects involved.

The investigation revealed that several rounds were fired, and at least four vehicles were struck by gunfire.

“Not very happy but look at the area that you’re in,” a woman whose car was hit by the gunfire said.

The woman did not want to be identified, but she said the violence in the community is commonplace.

“As you see, all the glass is on the ground here and in the car,” she said. “Bullet came through my sister’s windows straight through mine.”

Both she and her sister were upstairs in their home at the time. Police said they received two 911 calls. One call came from a passerby, and the other was from a nearby business.

Police do not believe the cars were targeted for a specific reason, and they do not know what the motive for the shooting was until they are able to locate those responsible.

No one was injured. Police do not have a description of the suspect or suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
