WATERTOWN — A 34-year-old was struck in the head with a firearm Tuesday evening on State Street, city police say.

Shortly before 5:30 p.m., city police responded to 1301 State St. for an incident involving three people. According to city police, two people allegedly entered the top-floor apartment at the location, confronted the 34-year-old and struck him in the head with the firearm. The 34-year-old then fled from the apartment.

When police arrived, they were unsure if the two people who went into the apartment were still inside. That is why a section of State Street was closed for a period of time. City police used its Special Response Team with a K-9 unit to clear the apartment, and there was nobody inside. State Street was then reopened to traffic.

The 34-year-old was treated at Samaritan Medical Center and released. The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to call Watertown police at 315-782-2233.
