Syracuse Police are investigating a shots fired call and stabbing on the city's south side.

According to police, officers responded to 351 W. Newell St. at McKinley Park around 4:25 p.m. Tuesday in regards to a shots fired call. When they arrived, officers were told that a black man wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans had fired shots in the area. While officers were investigating, they located two spent shell casings.

The suspect reportedly ran eastbound toward Primrose Avenue.

A short time later, officers were advised that a 22-year-old man had arrived at Upstate University Hospital seeking treatment for a stab wound to his hand.

At this time, it appears that the man was injured at some point during this incident. The victim has been uncooperative with detectives, so there is no suspect information available.

The victim's injury is not life-threatening.

There is no additional information at this time.
