A HUNT is underway for an armed suspect who allegedly left several injured in a gun rampage.

Police said that they are still on the hunt for the armed suspect in Watertown, New York.

Detective Lieutenant Joe Donoghue told 7News that people were shot, but did not comment on how many victims there were or their conditions.

Emergency dispatch reports at roughly 2pm, obtained by NNY360, claimed that two people were shots, however, it is unclear if that figure rose.
