Huntington Station had another night with gunshots, just a couple of days after two shootings left a man injured and came close to hitting a child.

No injuries were reported after several shots were fired near 10th Avenue in the early hours of Tuesday morning. The Suffolk County Police Department said officers responded to a ShotSpotter activation around 1:30 a.m. on that block, between Craven and West 15th streets.

Five men who were standing in front of a home on the residential street reported hearing gunshots and seeing flashes of light, police said, but did not see anyone firing a gun.

According to police, spent bullet casings were found at the scene.

The incident happened a little more than two days after back-to-back shootings echoed through Huntington Station. On Saturday night, one man was shot in the foot in a Long Island Rail Road commuter parking lot and just two hours later and a few blocks down, several shots were fired toward a home on East 6th Street. At that home, two friends were standing in the driveway when bullets hit the house and a vehicle in the driveway next door, where an 8-year-old child was asleep in the back seat.

The child was not hurt, police said. In the LIRR lot shooting, the victim fled to a nearby 7-Eleven, where someone called 911. He was in stable condition at the hospital.

Anyone with information about any of the shootings is asked to call the SCPD’s 2nd Squad detectives at 631-854-8252, or to call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 800-220-TIPS.
