UTICA, N.Y. -- A Utica teen was sentenced Tuesday after he admitted to shooting a man, which ultimately led to him shooting himself accidently.

Zachary Garcia-Kenyon was handed 15 years in state prison with five years’ post-release supervision, an order of protection, and a waiver of appeal.

He previously entered a plea of guilty to attempted murder in the second degree.

This after he allegedly shot a man in Utica last May and then accidentally shot himself in the groin after fleeing from the crime scene.
