Po­lice: Shot fired at Put­nam Place

The Saratogian (Saratoga, NY) - - LOCAL NEWS - By Sarato­gian staff

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. >> Saratoga Springs Po­lice of­fi­cers on pa­trol early Sun­day morn­ing in the vicin­ity of Put­nam Place, lo­cated on Put­nam Street in down­town Saratoga Springs, re­sponded when a sin­gle gun­shot was heard com­ing from in­side the venue.

At about 2:30 a.m. on Sun­day, Nov. 10, were in the vicin­ity of the bar/ live mu­sic venue. The venue was start­ing to empty out when of­fi­cers out­side heard a sin­gle gun­shot come from in­side the venue as it was start­ing to empty out.

This caused the crowd to exit the es­tab­lish­ment en masse. Of­fi­cers en­ter­ing Put­nam Place were un­able to lo­cate a victim or any­one re­spon­si­ble for fir­ing the shot.

Pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion in­side con­firmed what the of­fi­cers’ heard was a gun­shot. Nu­mer­ous in­ter­views were con­ducted at the scene as the pa­trons left and the crowd even­tu­ally dis­persed without any fur­ther in­ci­dents.

Put­nam Place staff also co­op­er­ated with of­fi­cers and in­ves­ti­ga­tors in the in­ter­view process.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion shows there was some type of phys­i­cal al­ter­ca­tion in­side the venue just prior to the shot be­ing fired. De­tails of that fight are un­known at present.

Sur­round­ing law en­force­ment agen­cies and re­gional hospi­tals were no­ti­fied as to a pos­si­ble shoot­ing victim in the case, but to date any victim has been found.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors are comb­ing through sur­veil­lance footage to iden­tify a pos­si­ble sus­pect. The na­ture of the shot be­ing fired should be a cause for pub­lic con­cern, but the Saratoga Springs Po­lice Depart­ment’s ini­tial be­lief is this was an iso­lated in­ci­dent.
