GLOVERSVILLE – A shooting earlier this month and a shooting in November are believed to be linked, Gloversville police said Monday.

Police recovered the gun believed to have been used in the recent shooting, Feb. 13, and are now investigating whether it was also used in a shooting Nov. 29.

No injuries were reported in either incident.

The recent incident happened just before 7 p.m. Feb. 13 on West Eighth Avenue in Gloversville, police said.

Officers responded to the scene and determined a residence had bene struck by a bullet, police said. Police then met with the occupants of the residence, but they were uncooperative, police said.

Police then reviewed city surveillance camera footage and identified a vehicle alleged to have been involved. Police then found that vehicle within about three hours of the incident. Detectives located and interviewed the operator, police said.

Detectives then used information from that interview to find and seize the firearm used in the incident, police said, a defaced .357 Magnum revolver. Police released a photo of the gun they said they seized.

Investigators believe the Feb. 13 shooting is linked to the Nov. 29 shooting on Third Street in Gloversville. Police did not detail that incident further, but gave no indication there were any injuries.

Gloversville police are being assisted by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Gloversville police detectives at 518-773-4513.
