Utica Police Chief Mark Williams is recognizing two officers for their handling and care of the victim of a recent shooting on the 1500 block of Conkling Avenue.

He says UPD Officers Aaron Llewellyn and Dan Mahaffy provided life saving techniques by applying a tourniquet to the leg wound, which is believed to have saved the victim's life.

Williams also says the officers did not lose sight of the criminal investigation and were able to obtain the name of the prime suspect.
