State Police Investigating Drive-By Shooting

On April 30, 2017, at approximately 5:30 p.m., State Police responded to Lanner Lane in the Eagle Ridge Apartment complex off Route 342, in the Town of Leray for a report of shots fired. State Police subsequently learned that an unidentified black colored car was traveling west on Lanner Lane, when the occupant(s) from that vehicle discharged a firearm in the direction of two vehicles that were parked, unoccupied, in front of a specific residence. Both vehicles were damaged by bullet holes along with two residences that were joined by a common wall, behind the vehicles, were also struck and sustained damage from projectiles. Information developed at the scene suggests this was not a random act of violence, but these particular vehicles or the homes behind the vehicles were targeted, for a yet to be determined reason. No one was injured as a result of this incident. State Police were assisted on scene by Fort Drum CID, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department, Jefferson County Emergency Management, and the Black River Fire Department. The investigation is ongoing.
