NFPD investigates shooting; City Hall put on lockdown
Niagara Falls City Hall was put on lockdown Tuesday morning for about 30 minutes after a shooting in the area.
Just before 9 a.m., the Niagara Falls Police Department responded to the area of the 700 block of Pine Avenue for what was initially reported as two people shooting at each other. Arriving officers quickly determined there was only one shooter. The investigation is ongoing, but it appears one female shot at another female at that location. No one was hurt.
Out of an abundance of caution, City Hall was put on lockdown at approximately 9:15 a.m. It was lifted at approximately 9:44 a.m.
9:35 a.m. Haranda announced, "The lockdown is now lifted.
"I do not have any other information at this time."
9:28 a.m.: City of Niagara Falls Public Information Officer Ann L. Harenda just informed the media, “Niagara Falls City Hall is currently on lock down as a result of a shooting between two vehicles on Pine Avenue (between 7th and 10th streets). One car has been apprehended. The other car is still at large.”
