Shooting victim idenitified, not cooperating with police

By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - The victim in Saturday night's shooting has been identified as William Brooks, Age 22, of Utica. His medical condition is listed as stable. Over a dozen bullet shell casings were located at the scene.

Brooks is not cooperating with Utica Police investigators at this time. Stray bullets also struck a home and motor vehicle on the 1500 block of West Street.

It is the opinion of Police Chief Mark Williams that unless victims and witnesses start cooperating with these investigations, this cycle of violence will continue; and residents will find themselves as prisoners in their own neighborhood or future victims of shootings.

Call police if you have any information.
