Three men approached a Summit Avenue home and opened fire Sunday night, injuring two people, police said.

The two people injured were taken to Albany Medical Center with what were described by police as non-life-threatening injuries.

No arrests had been made by Monday afternoon and police indicated they had only a vague description of the men.

The shooting happened just before 10 p.m. Sunday in the area of 419 Summit Ave.

Three men, all wearing hoodies, approached the outside of the residence and opened fire, apparently with handguns and a shotgun. Police later recovered a dozen shell casings. All three suspects are believed to have fired, police said. The suspects then fled in an unknown vehicle.

Injured were 24-year-old Jonathan Estrada and 19-year-old Enrique Perez-Bello, both of Schenectady. Neither of the men lives at that address. Both were outside it when they were shot, police said.

Estrada suffered gunshot wounds to his buttocks and forearm; Perez-Bello a gunshot wound to his upper leg. Both were treated at the scene by members of the Schenectady Fire Department and then transported to Albany Medical Center.

Why the men were shot was unknown, police said. It was also unclear if anyone else was with the men when they were shot, police spokesman Lt. Mark McCracken said.

The incident was being investigated by members of the Detective Division and the Evidence Collection Unit.

Albany shooting

Albany police were investigating their own non-fatal shooting Sunday night, police there said.

The Albany shooting happened just before midnight at Second Street and North Lake Avenue. Officers arrived to learn that the victim had already been taken to Albany Medical Center.

While investigating the incident at the hospital, officers spoke with Kedar Morton, of Albany, who stated that while walking in the area he was hit in the back of the head with bird shot.

He was treated at the hospital and was listed Monday in stable condition.
