Last night, at around 2 a.m., someone posted the news on Facebook that shots had been fired in front of the Savoia, in the 200 block of Warren Street. At 8:15 a.m., while on my morning walk with Joey, I encountered three Hudson police officers, searching the area across the street from the Savoia. They confirmed that two shots had been fired in the early morning and assured me that they had the gun and the person who had fired it. At the time I encountered them, the officers were searching the area for shell casings. That done, they interviewed people in the neighboring houses.
The incident brings to mind the controversy last fall over the suggestion that all bars in Hudson be required to close at 2 a.m. The discussion was sparked by a shooting that took place in the wee hours of the morning at First and Warren streets. The victim of that shooting was alleged to have been drinking at the Savoia.
