JAMESTOWN – Jamestown Police are continuing their investigation into a shooting incident at the Bullfrog Hotel Bar and Grill this past weekend that resulted in one person being sent to the hospital.
So far no charges have been filed in the incident that occurred early Saturday morning around 1:30 a.m. at the east side establishment next to the city line with Falconer. According to initial reports, the incident occurred after an altercation took place between two people in a hallway leading into the bar. The victim was struck twice by gunfire and taken to UPMC Chautauqua and later transferred to UPMC Hamot in Erie where he is now in stable condition.
Police haven’t released many details regarding the person who did the shooting, although they reportedly know the person’s identity and that person is cooperating with the investigation. Because no charges have been filed in the incident police are withholding the names of those who are involved.
On Tuesday afternoon WRFA reached out the city police for an update and Chief Harry Snellings said via email, “There are no new updates. We still need to interview the shooting victim.”
Jamestown police are also seeking potential witnesses as part of the ongoing investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call city police at 483-7537, the anonymous tip line at 483-8477 (TIPS), or via the Tips 411 cellphone app.
