A Saturday night out at the Newburgh waterfront ended with bloodshed.

On Sunday around 1:50 a.m., City of Newburgh police responded to the area of 26 Front Street for the report of shots fired. However, after speaking with security at Billy Joe’s the call was deemed to be unfounded, police say.

A short time later officers interviewed a taxi driver in the Newburgh-Beacon ferry parking lot who told them an incident happened in the parking lot and a person was hiding by a vehicle. After checking near the vehicle, officers noticed blood on the ground and located evidence of a shooting incident.

Around 2:20 a.m., St. Luke’s Hospital reported a gunshot victim was dropped off at the hospital. That victim was uncooperative with investigators, police say.

Around 3:17 a.m., the City of Newburgh police department received a phone call from the Town of Wallkill Police Department stating that a man responded to Orange Regional Medical Center who was the victim of a shooting. The shooting victim was also uncooperative with officers but it was determined that he was a victim of a shooting that had taken place in the ferry parking lot, police say.

Through the investigation, it’s been determined that there were approximately 30 people in the general area during the time of this incident, according to the City of Newburgh police department.

Police are asking anyone with any information about this incident to contact the department at (845)561-3131.
