Utica Police are now investigating 2 homicides from Saturday's shootings that occurred an hour from each other. The second victim who was shot has now died, according to police.

Police say they were called to 100 Rutger Street at around 1:45 p.m. on Saturday and found a male who had been shot at least once in the chest. Police say the victim died from his wounds.

About an hour later, UPD was called with reports of another shooting, this time on the 1000 block of Jefferson Avenue. A juvenile victim was shot once in the head, transported to a local hospital, and ultimately transported to Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse due to the severity of the injuries. As they were attempting to provide advanced emergency care, the victim succumbed to the injuries sustained.

Police say they are continuing their investigation and have made significant progress as they actively work the cases. They're asking residents that if anyone has information about either of the homicides, they contact the UPD Major Crimes Init at 315-223-3556.
