Resident fires at armed robbers

TOWN OF NEWBURGH – Police in the Town of Newburgh are investigating a home invasion robbery in which shots were fired.

Residents of 109 South Plank Road told officers three men wearing mask and armed with handguns entered their home, threatened them and demanded money.
