UTICA, N.Y. -- A man was critically injured after being shot several times in Utica Wednesday morning.

The shooting happened at the intersection of Steuben Street and Harding Place at 11:30 a.m.

Utica police were first called to the Steuben Street Mini Mart. The victim made his way into the convenience store for help, and when police arrived he was rushed to St. Elizabeth's for emergency treatment.

Utica police are not releasing the name of the victim, saying it's a pertinent part of the investigation.

Evidence markers in the street showed where spent shell casings fell.

The victim is listed in critical, but stable condition.

“Any time of year is never a good time of year for this kind of incident, however, this time of year – the holidays, we are certainly not going to stand for it. This violence will not go on. We are going to send extra patrols out, have extra officers. Our investigators will be on the scene all day long trying to figure out what happened,” said Utica Police Department Sergeant Mike Curley.

No one is in custody, but investigators are working to gather all surveillance video in the area

There is video of the victim, following the shooting, circulating on social media. UPD is interested in talking with the person who recorded it.
