One man was killed and two injured during a shooting incident on Crane Street early Saturday morning, police said.

Jonathan Olds, 20, of Schenectady, was found by police on the 900 block of Crane Street at about 2:45 a.m. suffering from a gunshot wound, police said in a news release. He was treated on the scene and transported to Ellis Hospital, where he died Saturday morning.

A second man with a gunshot wound also arrived at Ellis Hospital. He is now being treated at Albany Medical Center and is currently listed in serious but stable condition. The news release said a third victim walked into Ellis Hospital with a stab wound, and is currently in stable condition.

Schenectady Police Department spokesman Sgt. Matt Dearing said police believe all three victims were part of the same incident on Crane Street. He added that investigators are trying to piece together what exactly happened on a sprawling crime scene on Crane Street between Main Avenue and Francis Avenue.

“It’s a large area, they're trying to determine exactly where it occurred,” said Dearing.

One person who was at the scene Saturday took a photo that showed 41 evidence markers, which Dearing said spoke to the scale of the crime scene.

The owner of Adam Deli & Grocery on the Crane Street block where the incident occurred, who gave his name only as “Ali,” said police blocked the street off for the morning and much of the afternoon Saturday.

“I came in this morning and the whole thing was blocked,” said Ali. “From 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. we couldn’t open, it affected business.”

Police said the investigation is continuing and are asking anyone with information to call the TIPS line at 518-788-6566.
