Upon arrival, officers found a number of people and vehicles fleeing the area. A perimeter was set up around a residence and a male subject then exited the residence. It was found this male had received several stab wounds to the head and shoulder area, that would later be found to be non-life threatening.

Officers recovered spent shell casings at the scene, along with a different caliber handgun. Police did not locate anyone with gunshot wounds

Police say the subject that had been observed firing a handgun is described as a light skinned black male, thin build, 6’00” tall, wearing jeans and a white tee-shirt. He was last seen running west on E Center St and getting into a small dark colored SUV.

The involved parties are not cooperating with the investigation at this time. Police ask that anyone with information contact the Elmira Police Department at (607) 737-5626 or the anonymous tip line at 271-HALT.

Maybe they should start reporting when there isn't gunfire or crime somewhere in the city.  Just a thought ...

I think for the most part we are becoming desensitized by all this “ dinnit see nuttin “ thing when Police are trying to get to the bottom of things ! IMHO , MEH ... no biggie ! Do I Like the way it’s going or my attitude , Hell no but it just going to get worse before it gets better . Large groups fleeing the scene and nobody cooperating sickens me , and yes it should be a charge obstruction of Justice . But no , the Law shows up , calls EMTs for any injured parties of fights or shootings and so called “ victims “ see nothing ?? Meanwhile that Ambulance is not able to respond to that guy having a heart attack or that baby choking ... no their skills are being Wasted , that’s what I said Wasted , at the scene of some Drama injury or other such nonsense as we are seeing in Elmira anymore ! YMMV ( an old Marcy acronym ) but it’s all good !
