NEW HARTFORD - Police say no shots were fired after an investigation late Monday night.

They're now saying it was fireworks.

New Hartford Police officers were dispatched to Willowtree Circle just before midnight. Kirkland Police and Oneida County sheriff's deputies were also called in to assist.

Police say those who live in the neighborhood reported hearing two gunshots. Officers interviewed the people who live at the address in question, and they were unaware and sleeping at the time.

The department says they believe people actually heard loud fireworks, not gunshots.
