UTICA, N.Y. – Utica police arrested a murder suspect Monday that they’ve been searching for since the summer.
Nikyro Smith-Rucker is accusing of fatally shooting 56-year-old Gary McCorkle on Rutger Street the afternoon of July 3. Police named Smith-Rucker as the suspect a month after the murder, and have been searching for him since.
The UPD Warrants Unit worked with the New York/New Jersey Regional Marshalls Task Force to find Smith-Rucker at a residence on Scott Street.
Smith-Rucker has been charged with second-degree murder and police say he will likely be indicted on more charges.
