UTICA, N.Y. – A woman was shot on Miller Street in Utica early Monday morning, which is the third shooting reported in the city since Friday.

Utica police were called to the 1500 block of Miller Street around 2:40 a.m., where they found an 18-year-old woman who was shot in the lower back. Police say she was standing on the porch with other people when they heard gunshots, and she realized she was hit.

The woman was rushed to St. Elizabeth Medical Center to be treated. Police say she is expected to survive.

Utica police are investigating two other shootings that happened on Friday and Sunday as well.

On Friday, a man was shot in the leg on Seymour Avenue. He was airlifted to a Syracuse hospital to undergo emergency surgery. Police say surgeons were able to save his leg and he is expected to make a full recovery.

The second shooting happened on Gray Avenue Sunday afternoon to investigate a report of shots fired in the area. Soon after, a man who was shot multiple times in the legs went to St. Luke’s seeking treatment. According to police, the man claims he was shot during an argument with another man around 1:45 p.m.

No suspects have been arrested in any of the incidents, and it is not clear if they are related.

The Utica Police Department Major Crimes Unit is investigating all three cases, and is asking anyone with information to call 315-223-3556.
