Syracuse Police provide update on Midland Avenue shooting investigation

All victims are expected to recover

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - Syracuse Police continue to investigate a shooting on Midland Avenue that sent five people to the hospital with gunshot wounds.

On Sept. 20, an 8-year-old, three 35-year-olds and a 29-year-old were all sent to the hospital after one or multiple shooters opened fire on a family gathering outside 1317 Midland Avenue.

The victims are listed in "stable" condition and are expected to recover from their injuries.

The injured victims are: a 35-year-old man with gunshot wounds to torso, arm and leg areas, a 35-year-old woman with a gunshot wound to her abdomen, a 35-year-old woman with a gunshot wound to her hand, a 29-year-old man with a gunshot wound to his chest and an 8-year-old girl with a gunshot wound to her hip.

Syracuse Police say they have received multiple tips on a suspect and are working to confirm them. 

They say they have not positively identified a suspect at this time. 

However, the District Attorney's Office says it's believed two shooters are involved, but that number could change.

The investigation is continuing. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Syracuse Police Department Criminal Investigations Division at (315) 442-5222.
