HUDSON — Police believe Saturday afternoon’s shooting incident in Hudson was a targeted shooting, and not a random act, Hudson Police Chief L. Edward Moore said Saturday afternoon.
Police received several reports at about 12:34 p.m. from residents on Robinson Street that they heard multiple gun shots, Moore said.
No one was injured during the incident but several vehicles and one residence were struck by bullets. Police found evidence of a shooting at the scene, including more than a dozen shell casings, Moore said.
“Nobody has reported to be injured from this incident,” Moore said.
Police were looking for one vehicle that may have been damaged by bullets and left the scene, Moore said.
No arrests have been made, Moore said.
Robinson Street was closed between North 3rd and North 2nd streets during the investigation, which has since been reopened to traffic. Police remained in the area throughout the evening, Moore said.
A police tracking dog was brought in to assist.
Police were at the scene most of Saturday afternoon, and concentrated on an area in the middle of the block, near 234 Robinson St., Moore said.
Police interviewed residents and possible witnesses and checked area security camera footage, Moore said.
“We have developed leads, and we have the full support from the Sheriff’s Office, State Police and Columbia County District Attorney’s Office,” Moore said. “We will work aggressively, continually, and bring all resources to bear in order to identify those responsible for this dangerous and reckless behavior.”
State police, the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office and Stockport Police, are assisting in the investigation.
Anyone with information is asked to call Hudson Police at 518-828-3388.
The last shots fired incidents in Hudson were on Oct. 11 and 12, in the area of North 2nd and Columbia streets, and in the 200 block of Rope Alley.
Police also investigated reports of shots fired July 27 on South 1st Street at Cherry Alley. No arrests have been made in those shootings.
