Press Release, Medina Police Chief Chad Kenward

MEDINA — At least two vehicles were hit with bullets during a block party in Medina last night, Medina Police Chief Chad Kenward said today.

No one has been confirmed to have been injured after a black male discharged a handgun into the air several times, Kenward said.

There was a large group of people at a house party in the 300 block of West Avenue. Medina police officer Mark Prawel reported there were shots fired at about 11:30 p.m. in the 300 block of West Avenue.

Preliminary investigation indicates that a verbal altercation ensued among people at the party and that spilled over to the parking lot at St. Mary’s Catholic Church.

“Numerous shell casings and mangled bullets have been removed from the scene,” Kenward said.

The Medina PD is continuing its investigation into this incident. Medina was assisted by the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office and New York State Police.
