UPDATE: [1/6/13; 9 a.m.] According to Norristown Police Detective Corporal Adam Schurr, authorities have recovered evidence from one of several shots fired incidents within a few hours of one another in Norristown on Saturday, Jan. 5.
Police believe six shots were fired in the incident at Oak and Smith Streets – two into a vehicle at the scene which authorities had been seized and were awaiting a search warrant on early Sunday morning. According to Cpl. Schurr, officers also recovered casings from the scene.
That incident followed within minutes of a shots fired report in the 400 block of Moore Street at approximately 5:30 p.m. where police also recovered fragments from several bullets as well as sneakers and reportedly a jacket from someone at the scene at the time of the shooting.
A third, earlier shots fired incident somewhere in the area of Green and Oak Streets was also reportedly under investigation, but few details are available in that incident.
Residents have reported a fourth shots fired incident later Saturday night, but Norristown Patch has been unable to confirm that incident with police at this time.
Norristown Police are currently investigating a scene at Moore and Violet Streets where shots were reported fired Saturday evening. There are multiple bullet fragments at the scene and sneakers were found that are believed to be from someone involved in the incident.
Neighbors reported hearing shots fired.
It is unclear if this incident is related to two other incidents that have been reported by residents in the last few hours in Norristown: in the area of Arch and Smith streets and Green and Oak streets.
All three reports are still under investigation and no one has been reported injured in any of the incidents.
Norristown Patch will update this as more details emerge.
