UTICA- Two Utica Police officers are being recognized after helping the victim in the Conkling avenue shooting that happened on Monday January 8.

Officer Aaron Llewellyn and Officer Dan Mahaffy assisted the male who was shot that day.

We talked to officer Llewllyn who told us he heard the call for shots fired, and a victim with a possible gunshot wound. He said when he rushed to Conkling avenue, he saw the victim on the sidewalk who was stumbling and exhausted.

He said when the victim turned around to talk to him, he saw the gunshot wound on the upper thigh and the victim's pant leg soaked in blood.

Shortly after, Llewellyn said himself and Mahaffy decided to use a tourniquet, a device used to help control blood flow, on the victim. He said his main concern was keeping the victim safe.

"I mean anytime you're at a situation with a shots fired victim, there is obviously somebody with a gun somewhere in the area but you've gotta try to stay focused on what's going on," said Llewellyn.

He also told us this was his first time using a tourniquet, but has had a lot of training.
