LATEST: Police say they don’t know where Geneva shooting occurred

Not a lot of new information.

That was the takeaway from an inquiry made by the Finger Lakes Times for more information about a shooting investigation launched Sunday morning.

That investigation began when police were called to Geneva General Hospital for a gunshot victim, who walked into the hospital’s emergency room.

Chief Mike Passalacqua said that an update to the press would be coming via email, but no timeline was indicated.

The male had not been identified by police when they initially announced the investigation. The shooting happened during the early-morning hours.

The injuries suffered by the victim were classified as life-threatening. He was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital after initial treatment at Geneva General Hospital.

One thing Passalacqua did note in his update to the FLT was that the location remains unknown.

“There is no location of the shooting released because we do not know exactly where this occurred,” he said to the Times.

Anyone with information about the incident or investigation can contact Detective Matt Colton at (315) 828-6779 or email mkc@geneva.ny.us.
