TROY, N.Y. -- A young man is sent to Albany Medical Center after shots were fired in Troy in broad daylight.
According to police, they received a number of calls about shots fired in the area of Swift and 6th Avenue around 2 p.m. When police found the victim, he was bleeding from the torso and trying to get to the hospital in a friend's car. Police say his injuries are thought to be non-life threatening.
Police say few details are known at this time, but they do know a black sedan was driving through the area at the time of the shooting.
"At some point, a black sedan, possible a four door, gray interior, drove through the area. There was shots fired at approximately the same time. We know nothing regarding the weapon, the number of shots fired. We only know that we do have one victim and patrolmen are now working hard to recover any physical evidence that may be at the scene," said captain John Cooney of the Troy Police Department.
Cooney says the fact that the shooting happened during the day does concern police about the possible motive behind the shooting.
