Police: Dispute between brothers leads to shots fired at multiple Middletown houses

A domestic dispute between brothers is apparently the cause of the shooting, police said. Police are looking for a male suspect from Batavia who reportedly left the scene in a “black sporty type vehicle, perhaps a BMW,” Reeve said.

A total of five shots were fired. There were no injuries, but it was a close call for one neighbor who was standing near the door when a bullet hit the door frame, according to police.
