Erie police were searching for a suspect in a late-morning shooting on the city’s east side Thursday.
No one was reported injured in the shooting, which was reported in the area of East 25th and Parade streets shortly after 11:30 a.m. Thursday. Officers were called to the area after callers reported hearing several gunshots. It was also reported that a male was seen running from the area.
Officers who responded searched areas including a section of East 24th Street east of Parade Street. The officers reviewed surveillance video from the One Stop on the southeast corner of East 24th and Parade streets that captured images of a shooting, Erie police Deputy Chief Jon Nolan said.
Officers also searched the area immediately east of the store for any evidence, including shell casings. Nolan said a piece of a bullet was found near a building in the 400 block of East 23rd Street that appeared to have been struck by a bullet.
Police described the shooting suspect as a black male who was wearing a black sweatshirt and blue jeans. He was last seen running east on East 24th Street, police said.
Police did not find any evidence of anything else struck by gunfire in the area, he said.
