Utica Police have made an arrest in a shooting that happened Sunday night on the 700 block of Mary Street.

Officers arrived to find several spent shell casings at the scene.

They also spoke with a witness who said they had helped an individual who was shot and that the victim had self-transported to the hospital.

It was later learned that a victim had walked into St. Elizabeth Hospital with a gunshot wound to the foot.

An investigation revealed that a dark-colored sedan had slowly passed the location where numerous individuals were standing outside.

Police say as the vehicle passed, the rear seat passenger displayed a handgun out of the window and fired several shots at the group, ultimately striking one individual and striking at least two nearby residences.

They were able to develop a positive vehicle identification and located the vehicle at the registered address.

As the investigation progressed a suspect was developed, and on June 6th the suspect was located and interviewed.

Police arrested the 17-year-old on the following:

  • Attempted Murder in the second degree
  • Criminal Possession of Weapon in the second degree

Due to the suspect’s age, police say his name  will not be released.
