Saugerties Police investigate shots fired in apartment complex


SAUGERTIES – Police are
continuing to investigate reports of someone firing a shotgun into the
air from a balcony at the Skyline apartments.

Investigating officers could not find the alleged shooter but interviewed
someone who said they saw a person firing into the air in the July 1 incident
that was reported at 10:07 p.m.

Another man said he lived in an apartment below the one from which the
gunshots were reportedly fired.

Further investigation determined the man who said he lived in an apartment
other than where the shots were fired actually lived in that unit and
gave police a false name and date of birth.

and was issued a court appearance ticket.

Saugerties Police, meanwhile, are continuing their investigation into
the incident and is asking anyone with information to contact the detective
