UTICA, N.Y. - Utica Police have made an arrest in a shooting that occurred earlier this month in Cornhill where a man was shot multiple times.

Police say 21-year-old Tyrique Linder of Utica was apprehended early Sunday morning and is charged with attempted murder, criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of a firearm and criminal possession of a controlled substance.

The shooting happened at the intersection of Neilson Street and Arthur Street in the Cornhill section of Utica around 5 p.m. on Friday, June 4.

A male victim was found in a nearby driveway suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his lower extremities.

Police say the victim's leg was saved by doctors during emergency surgery on June 4 and he is expected to be ok.

Police say in the days following the shooting, suspect information was developed and early Sunday morning members of the Crime Prevention Unit noticed the suspect they were looking for walk into a tavern in West Utica.

Police are not releasing the name of the tavern.

Police say responding officers established a perimeter and waited for additional officers.

Police say once officers were in place, some officers went into the tavern and were then directed to a location where the male was attempting to hide from the officers with his shirt off.

Police say they found Linder's shirt and a loaded 9mm handgun in a garbage can in the bar.

No word on Linder's next court date.
