SL man arrested for making false report to police in shooting case

Police believe Martin’s wounds to be self-inflicted

— From Tuesday night into Wednesday morning Nason said nine officers, four State Police and five village officers canvassed the area knocking on doors around Pine Street, Main Street, and Bloomingdale.

Nason said Martin’s discharge of a firearm also broke Environmental Conservation laws which prohibit the discharge of a firearm within 500 feet from a dwelling and village laws which prohibit the discharge of a firearm within the village limits.

“We are continuing to investigate the incident and at this time we cannot say how the incident played out,” Nason said.

The police are asking anyone that may have been in the area of the train trestle, or nearby streets, including Pine St., Bloomingdale Ave., Main St., Church St., or Forest Hill Ave. around 6:15 and 7 p.m. to contact the Saranac Lake Police Department at 891-4422.
