ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) – Three people were taken into custody after what Elmira Police called an “Active Critical Incident” following a shooting on Saturday morning.

Police responded to West Hudson Street after reports of the shooting and located a barricaded individual, which prompted an additional response from SWAT and Negotiation Teams.

At 8 a.m. the police department asked residents to remain out of the area while it remained an active scene. At 9:30 a.m. police announced the scene was safe and that further information would later be released.

It’s unclear who the three individuals who were removed from the home are and if they were charged with any crimes.

Viewer photos and video show police blocking off W. Hudson Street between S. Main and S. Walnut Streets.

Police have already responded to two other shootings on W. Hudson this year on April 18 during a homicide vigil and Aug. 23 near Fulton Street.
