Shots were fired Saturday night at the location of a shooting that morning on Crane Street, authorities said today. The morning shooting left Marvin Sanchez, 30, in critical condition Saturday evening at Albany Medical Center.

Schenectady police said shots were fired into a second-floor apartment, 1347 Crane St., around 10 p.m. Saturday. That’s the same location where Sanchez was shot Saturday shortly before 10 a.m.

The shooter remains at large today. The motive behind the shooting is unclear.

On Saturday night, unidentified suspects shot into the second-floor apartment, where at least two adults were inside at the time, police said. There were no injuries reported.

Two vehicles were seen leaving the scene shortly after the incident, according to police. One vehicle was described as a white sedan; the second as a black sedan. The make and model of both vehicles are unknown.

Sanchez, of 1349 Crane St. -- which is downstairs from 1347 -- was taken to Albany Med on Saturday morning with life-threatening injuries.

Police said two females were detained inside the home at 1347 Crane St. and interviewed by detectives Saturday. They later were released.

No arrests have been made in connection with either incident.

Schenectady police searched for Sanchez’s shooter Saturday morning into the afternoon on Crane Street, later expanding their search to homes on Santa Fe Street.

Lt. Mark McCracken said Saturday afternoon that police believed the suspect was in the second-floor apartment on Crane Street, where the search initially was focused. Police then received information that the suspect was on Santa Fe Street.
