Police say they were met with "large crowds" when they found the victim lying in the street.  Identified only as a male, the victim was brought to the hospital by emergency responders with the Utica Fire Department.  The UPD says that he had been shot in both legs.  His injuries, though, appear to be non-life-threatening.

Investigation of the case has been assigned to the UPD's Major Crimes Unit

Because of the crowds - both in the street and at the hospital - the UPD says that assistance was requested from several outside agencies.  The UPD is thanking those agencies for the additional help as "personnel arrived immediately to help control the situation."

The investigation into this shooting is active.  Police are asking witnesses or anyone with information that may be helpful to the investigation to call the Utica Police Department at: (315) 223.3556.
