SCHENECTADY - Schenectady police are investigating multiple shootings involving cars in the last two days.

Police said a light color Jeep was found with multiple bullet holes on Odell Street around 6 a.m. Saturday. The car was vacant when officers responded.


Just about five minutes away, police responded to a very similar scene on Elmer Avenue Friday afternoon. That car was found multiple bullet holes and blood inside.

NewsChannel 13 spoke with the young man who spotted the car and reported it to police.

"When we noticed there was a Nissan Rogue parked out in our neighbor's normal parking spot, but like we had never seen this vehicle before then I looked closely and there was a shattered windshield in front,” 15-year-old Omar Kallicharran said.

Kallicharran said when he got closer, he saw blood inside the vehicle, but no victim.

He also said there wasn't any blood or glass on the street around the vehicle and none of his neighbors heard gunshots Friday afternoon. That's led him to believe the actual shooting happened somewhere else.

The whole ordeal made Kallicharran and his family uneasy, so they decided to add some extra security to their home.

“Our family decided to just go out and buy a Ring doorbell because you know ever since that incident happened they [police] were looking for people who had surveillance, and we just didn't,” Kallicharran said. “I just felt like it would be better if we have security."

Schenectady police haven't made any arrests in either incident. They're asking anyone with information to contact them at 518-630-0911.
