Little Information Available As Police Continue Homicide Investigation

The Auburn Police Department is still asking for the public’s help as a homicide investigation continues following an overnight shooting that left one man dead.

The shooting happened during the early-morning hours on Friday – around 2:10 a.m. at 8 Delevan Street. Police said that one person was taken to the hospital, where he succumbed to injuries sustained in the shooting.

Very little information had been released through the day, and no suspect was officially in custody – but The Citizen reported that law enforcement responded to Holley Street during the evening hours – after a vehicle that had been subject of a “be on the lookout” alert was stopped.

They say one person was taken into custody. However, police had not identified that person; and did not indicate whether that person was involved in the shooting investigation.

The scene was nearby the Genesee Elementary School. Police said they fielded concerns from parents about sending their children to the school that day – but all indications were that students, staff, and neighbors nearby were not in any danger.

Anyone with information should call (315) 255-4726, email tips to communitywatch@auburnny.gov or send tips to the department through its Facebook page, facebook.com/auburnnypd.
