Batavia police looking for suspect in Tracy Avenue shooting
Police now have a suspect in the case of shots fired on Tracy Avenue last Wednesday. It's the same person they've been looking for all along; he's now formally a suspect.
And he's also suspected of stealing a truck from Western NY Concrete on East Main Street prior to the shooting.
The truck was found on Ellicott Avenue about three hours after the shooting, according to Det. Richard Schauf, and police believe it's the same truck used by the alleged shooter on Wednesday. The truck is being checked for evidence.
There's no new information available on the suspect.
Police are also not saying how many shots were fired, just that several hit the car.
Detectives now want to talk to a third person they believe was in the car with the two 18-year-olds mentioned in previous reports. The third person is male and a teenager. He has not made himself available for an interview. It's not believed he was wounded during the attack.
Law enforcement agencies throughout Western New York have been advised to be on the lookout for the shooting suspect.
Police also continue to try and retrace the steps of the occupants of the car in an attempt to further the case.
