A startling scene on Route 9W as it was cordoned off for several hours after a shooting at an area night club. Our Eva McKend has more on what police say are two related shooting investigations.
ULSTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- "I just heard 'pop, pop, pop.' I got up I looked out the window. I saw everybody outside," said Darlene Williams.
With her home just feet away from the Home night club, Williams woke up to the sound of gun fire Saturday morning.
"I thought I heard more than four shots. I heard the cops come. I heard them say, 'get your hands up,'" said Williams.
Several Ulster County agencies are investigating two incidents after a shooting in the parking lot of the club in the Town of Lloyd and a shooting on 9W by White Street in Highland. A stretch of the highway was shut down for hours.
Williams, who is concerned about her 12 and 8 year-olds, says living so close to the club, she always hears the noise.
"I knew sooner or later something bad was going to happen," said Williams.
Police say they followed the suspects in a 2014 Nissan Altima but when they were met with resistance, police shot the driver.
"Two illegal hand guns were subsequently recovered from the Nissan. Two additional subjects were taken into custody as they left the area on foot. One of those subjects was also armed with an illegal handgun," said Ulster County District Attorney Holley Carnright.
At least one sheriff's deputy was already outside of the club before the shooting in response to complaints from some residents.
All involved including two police officers injured in the parking lot were taken to St. Francis to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.
