UTICA – A teen has been arrested in connection to the shots fired incident near Proctor High School a couple weeks ago.

Seventeen-year-old Matthew “Casper” Millan is charged with felony first-degree reckless endangerment and felony second-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Police say around 2:25 p.m. October 25, three people were sitting in a red sedan on Hilton Avenue when one of them tried shooting someone outside of the car, but they missed and the bullet struck a school bus that was waiting to exit a nearby lot with about 20 students inside. The bullet grazed and broke a bus window, then got lodged into the window panel, narrowly missing a student inside the bus.

Police say they quickly developed suspects in the case, and during the investigation they learned that the suspects had fled the area to avoid speaking with police. Utica police then enlisted the help of the U.S. Marshals Regional Task Force of NY/NJ to locate the suspects. While the Task Force was investigating the whereabouts of the suspects, Utica police investigators secured evidence and witness statements.

On November 13, Millan was found by the U.S. Marshals Regional Task Force of NY/NJ at a residence in the Bronx and he was turned over to Utica police. He then provided a statement about his involvement in the case and was charged.

Police say that the investigation is ongoing and more arrests are expected, including those who hindered the investigation and assisted the suspects in fleeing the area.
