UTICA, N.Y. -- A 14-year-old boy and 15-year-old boy have been charged by Utica Police for allegedly shooting a 16-year-old boy. 

The teen walked into St. Elizabeth Medical Center on Oct. 6, with a gunshot wound to his arm. 

Police say the shooting happened in the 1100 block of Brinckerhoff Avenue, in Utica. 

The boy told police he was walking, when the two other boys started following him. He says one began shooting at him, hitting him once in the arm. 

The two boys were arrested on Monday, but because of their ages, their names will not be released. 

They are each charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon. 

The case will now head to Oneida County Family Court.
