Shooting, Gunfire Under Investigation in Williamsport

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- Police in Williamsport are investigating two episodes of gunfire Monday night that left one person injured.

Officers found that man on Hillside Avenue around 9 p.m. after neighbors reported gunshots and seeing two men running from the area.

One resident told Newswatch 16 she heard more than half a dozen shots.

"As soon as I heard it, I knew they were gunshots but its Williamsport, so I didn't think much of it anymore. I locked my doors, told my kids to go upstairs and kind of waited it out," Alicia Black said.

About two and a half hours later, more gunfire was heard in the 2,500 block of West Fourth Street. At least one bullet hit a vehicle.

No one hurt there.

Police have not said if the two incidents in Williamsport are connected.
