Person sought following report of shots fired in Batavia

posted by Howard B. Owens in batavia, crime.

Police responded to a report of shots fired in the City of Batavia at 10:30 last night and say that a car was struck by the bullets.

Investigators reportedly have identified a person of interest in the case.

There were no injuries reported.

Area law enforcement agencies have been notified to be on the look out for the person of interest and warned that the person may be armed.

UPDATE 8:54 a.m.: Police have released additional information about the case.

The car that was shot at was occupied by two 18-year-old men. They reported being followed by what appeared to be a pickup truck on Tracy Avenue.

In an attempt to get away from the pickup truck, the driver pulled into a driveway. It was then that a person in the truck fired at the car. The driver plowed through a snow bank to try and get away.

Neither occupant was struck, but the car was damaged. Police are examining the car in an attempt to recover any evidence.

Batavia Police are planning at press conference at 11 a.m. to answer media questions and release any new information, if available.

I heard about this from one of the cashiers at Hess early this morning. Was going to e-mail you about it seeing if you knew had heard anything.
