UTICA, N.Y. (UPDATED) – Two people were injured, one a 4-year-old child, during shootings in Utica over the course of a few hours from Thursday evening into early Friday morning.

Police were called to St. Luke’s Hospital around 10 p.m. Thursday, after a man showed up with a gunshot wound to his abdomen. The 27-year-old victim was alert and able to speak with officers when they arrived. He said he was shot on the 1500 block of Dudley Avenue, and drove himself to the hospital.

Officers were sent to Dudley Avenue to investigate, and found several 9mm shell casings in the area.

A little more than two hours later around 12:20 a.m., officers were sent to the 100 block of Gold Street for another reported shooting, where a 4-year-old was hit in the hand with a bullet.

The child was taken to a Syracuse hospital for treatment before police arrived.

Police say suspects drove by the home on Gold Street, and fired a shot toward the residence. Then roughly 10 minutes later, the same vehicle drove by firing several more bullets at the home, with one hitting the child. Officers found several 9mm shell casings at the scene.

Around the same time, police say they received another report of shots fired on the 800 block of Chestnut Street. No injuries were reported, but officers did find several shell casings in the area.

Police are investigating all three incidents, and say it is unclear at this time if they are related.

Anyone with information should contact the UPD Major Crimes Division at 315-223-3510.
