Three suspects at large after early morning burglary, shooting in Schenectady

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Police are searching for three suspects involved in an overnight shooting that sent one man to the hospital.

Investigators are now calling this incident a home invasion. They say three people broke in during the middle of the night and shot the man that lived there.

Schenectady detectives executed a search warrant and right now, evidence technicians are canvassing the property.

Meanwhile, the victim is at Albany Med in critical condition undergoing his second surgery of the day.

Just after 1:30 a.m. Wednesday morning Schenectady Police got the 911 call that a man had been shot. They say they found the 51-year-old victim inside his home at 22 Catherine Street with a gunshot wound to his pelvis.

The crime scene tape immediately went up and investigators could be seen searching the home.

Police have been monitoring the corner of Victory Ave. and Catherine Street ever since.

Once the sun came up family members came to the house visibly upset and wanting answers. But police say that will take some time, with no one but the victim home at the time of the crime, they’ll have to wait until he’s at least out of surgery before they can get an idea as to who was in his home and why.

Meanwhile, detectives have made their way around the neighborhood knocking on doors, asking questions, hoping to put the pieces together.

“Detectives working the case are speaking to as many people as they can. Neighbors, surveillance cameras, things like that, but as of now no suspect is in custody,” said

Police tell NEWS10 while the suspects are still on the loose, they do not believe the public is in any danger. They’re asking anyone with information about what happened here to give them a call at (518) 382-5245.
