If you follow the Facebook community boards, you already know about gunshots being fired around midday today on Robinson Street. What follows is the official press release about the incident from the Hudson Police Department:
At 12:34 pm this afternoon HPD received a call via Columbia County 911 that several citizens were reporting numerous shots fired in the vicinity of the 200 block of Robinson Street. HPD units arrived at the scene within one minute and found evidence of a shooting incident; shell casings, several vehicles and one residence struck by bullets. Assistance was immediately rendered by responding units from the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office, New York State Police and the Stockport Police Department.
Initial indications reveal that one vehicle may have been damaged by bullets and left the scene, and that no one was injured in the shooting.
It is our belief this was a targeted shooting, and not a random act.
“Officers have secured the neighborhood and numerous interviews are underway. Robinson Street has been reopened to vehicle traffic and patrols are in the area throughout this evening. Our Detectives have secured evidence to include more than a dozen shell casings. We have developed leads, and we have the full support from the Sheriff’s office, New York State Police and Columbia County District Attorney’s Office. We will work aggressively, continually, and bring all resources to bear in order to identify those responsible for this dangerous and reckless behavior.” Chief
