SCHENECTADY -- City police are investigating after someone discharged a firearm on Lincoln Avenue on Thursday, according Sgt. Matt Dearing.
He said police found a single shell casing near 806 Lincoln Ave. No other evidence, including other casings or a possible victim, were located.
Police previously said that they had no one in custody related to their investigation.
A call reporting the shots came in at approximately 10:08 a.m., according to Dearing. The information that was provided, though, was somewhat vague, he said.
Police alerted the public using Twitter on Thursday -- a practice Dearing said the department has done in the past, and recently used for a bomb threat at First Reformed Church at Union and N. Church streets.
No bomb was found in that incident.
Dearing said the department plans to be more active on Twitter in the future, when it comes to active incidents, but it’s “all dependent upon the circumstances.”
“For people in and around the area, if they can get information, even if it’s just a baseline of what’s going on, that’s always helpful,” Dearing said.
Anyone with information about Thursday's incident was asked to call the department’s detective division at 518-382-5245.
