Erie Police continue to investigate a shooting after a victim was dropped off at the hospital on July 7.

It is the most recent shooting in a string of crimes we’ve reported where a victim is dropped off at the hospital.

A 19-year-old woman, suffering from a gunshot wound to the neck, arrived a local hospital around 2:15 a.m. on Thursday, July 7.

Erie Police believe the shooting took place at a residence in the 500 block of East 10th Street.

Erie Police Deputy Chief William Marucci said this does happen. However, an investigation can be furthered if witnesses call 911 at the scene.

“It does help us quickly learn where the actual incident did take place. If we do get dispatched to a hospital for a walk-in victim, we have to then quickly determine where it happened and then send additional officers to that area, then to cordon off that area and attempt to retrieve evidence,” said Deputy Chief William Marucci, Erie Police.

Erie Police towed the vehicle that was brought to the hospital and are working to obtain a search warrant.
