Possible homicide in Palenville

An incident in the Greene County hamlet of Palenville brought helicopters and police to 844 Pennsylvania Avenue on August 10 to investigate a possible shooting and homicide, according to the Daily Mail, Daily Freeman, and the New York State Police.  

State police told reporters that they were on the scene around 5 p.m. on Sunday investigating a shooting and a suspicious death, but offered no more details. 

Kyle Adams, a reporter at the Daily Mail, reports that two people are dead, according to Greene County Coroner Richard Vigilo, and that Greene County 911 received a complaint of a shooting around 12:45 p.m. Adams also reported that witnesses saw a helicopter searching the area around Pennsylvania Ave. throughout Sunday evening. 

There have been only two murders in Greene County between 2009 and 2013, and one of them also happened on Pennsylvania Ave. in Palenville, although at a different address, according to the Daily Freeman.

Steven Nevel, the State Police public information officer for Troop F, told the Watershed Post that there will be a press conference at noon on Monday, August 11 at the Catskill State Police barracks, where more information will be released.

"There's no need to be alarmed, everyone's been accounted for," Nuzzo said.
