TROY, N.Y. -- Troy police are looking for two men they say forced their way into an apartment armed with a gun and beat up one of the residents. Police say it happened at 519 First Street around 8:30 p.m. Monday.
The men demanded the residents turn over any valuables and one of the suspects fired a gun. No was hit by the gunfire, but police say a 23-year-old woman was hurt.
"One of the men did hit a victim in the face. Minor injuries that did not require treatment, but more importantly, a shot was fired. We believe the gun was pointed into the air and shot at the ceiling. We are trying to decide if it was part of the robbery or a message trying to be sent by the subjects to whoever they were looking for at the time," said Capt. John Cooney of the Troy Police Department.
Troy police say the men then took off.
