Two Dead in Two Different Incidents That May be Related

Schenectady Fatal

Two people are dead in a series of events that police believe are connected, and resulted in the shutdown of I-90 near the 787 interchange for several hours. 

Acting Police Chief Robert Sears says officers were called to the area of Erie Boulevard and Erie Street Sunday afternoon. 

They found a woman in the street with severe injuries.

At about the same time, cops got a call that a man was hit by a car while trying to cross I-90 near the 787 interchange.

The woman was pronounced dead at Albany Med. 

Sears says officers believe the man and woman were involved in a fight and the man ran onto the highway where he was killed. 

Their names still haven't been released.
