ALBANY, N.Y. — Albany police are still working to connect the dots between two incidents in Albany involving the deaths of two people.
Albany police were called to the intersection of Erie Street and Erie Boulevard for a report of a fight around 3 p.m. Sunday. That's when they found a woman down in the intersection near a car. Authorities say she has been pronounced dead.
Around the same time, state police say they were called to Exit 6A on Interstate 90 for a man hit by a car. He was also pronounced dead.
Police say the two incidents, which were only a couple hundred feet apart, are connected.
"Obviously this is one big crime scene that we're treating this as. We have our scan equipment which will basically take photographs of the scene so we can reconstruct it and try to learn a little bit more from that. Same thing is being conducted by the state police on I-90. Same, similar equipment. And they’re going to piece together their accident up there,” said Albany Police Acting Chief Robert Sears.
Sears also says a gun was found on I-90 near the crash.
The names of the two people killed are being withheld until family is notified.
