Jamestown Police are investigating four shooting incidents over a 36 hour period.

The first shooting happened early Thursday morning. Police say several shots were fired just after 4 a.m., after an argument on South Main Street escalated.  Police say there was a party inside 129 South Main Street at the time.

Investigators say 26 year-old Allan Burnett of Buffalo died at the scene. Two others were shot and were treated with non-life threatening wounds.

About nine hours later, at 1:15 p.m. Thursday, officers received calls of several shots being fired at Falconer and Thayer Streets.  Police were told two black men wearing black winter type jackets fired at a vehicle that was driving through the area.

No one was injured.

Then, on Friday afternoon, officers responded to 344 E. 4th Street on a report of shots being fired.  According to police, witnesses indicated that a suspect dressed in black with a dark ski type mask entered the apartment and fired multiple shots at an occupant.

That person who was allegedly targeted was not struck and no injuries were reported.

Police say the suspect fled.

The fourth, happened around 8 o'clock Friday evening in the vicinity of Lakeview and Euclid Avenue. No one was injured at this scene either. 

Investigators are trying to determine if these shootings are connected.

Anyone with information should contact the Jamestown Police at 483-7537 or leave an anonymous tip at 483-8477.
