Man hit by car after gun shots fired in Syracuse’s North Side, police say

Syracuse, N.Y. — After gun shots were fired in the 1600 block of Spring Street on Thursday night, a car that appeared to be fleeing hit a fence, shrubs and a man, according to Syracuse police.

The man who was hit by the car suffered non-life threatening injuries, police said.

A 911 caller initially reported that about six shots were fired at 3:27 p.m., according to Onondaga County 911 dispatch logs.

The caller reported seeing a red Jeep Wrangler drive down Spring Street after hearing the gun shots, according to scanner reports.

The man who was hit by the car was brought into a house at 1604 Spring Street briefly before officers arrived, police said. The man was then taken to Upstate University Hospital by an ambulance, according to police.

At the scene, officers taped off the yard around 1604 Spring Street. Multiple cars remained on the scene for several hours.

Officers cuffed a man at the scene and put him in the back of a transport van, telling two bystanders the man was going to the police department’s criminal investigations division in the Public Safety Building.

Police have not yet said whether anyone was arrested.
