Five people injured in early morning shooting
TROY -- Five people are recovering after a shooting in Troy early Sunday morning. Police were called to the area of 121 to 125 4th Street in Troy, just outside Gino's Pizza. The victims are being described as two females and three males, all between the ages of 18 and 27. Police were investigating Sunday as to what lead to the violence.
"It's been a public matter that there is some ongoing feuds between those involved in the criminal trade between the city of Albany and Troy we will certainly attempt to see if that's the case. The importance of making that attempt is to see if this shooting is random," says Capt. John Cooney,
The section of 4th street where the shooting occurred is known as "the pizza block." Police say it's very popular at that hour for those leaving local bars. Both "I Love Pizza" and Gino's were very crowded at the time of the incident. We are told that three of those shot were innocent bystanders.
"Based on the players involved, based on the identity of our victims we do see three as very innocent bystanders but we also see two as people we have been familiar with, and have been in contact with police under adverse conditions in the past so we'll be looking at them specifically," says Cpt. Cooney.
Four of the victims were taken to Albany Medical Center, then police were notified that a fifth victim was taken to Albany Memorial Hospital. Police say all of them are expected to survive. At this time no suspect is in custody.
