Utica Home bombarded with bullets, police don’t know why

A house on Dudley Ave. in Utica was strewn with bullets and now the Utica police are trying to figure out who did it and why.

The incident happened overnight, around 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Officers who responded to the multi-family home at 1645 Dudley Ave. say she was hit at least four times by gunfire and a projectile was found inside a residence. There were several people inside the apartment where the bullets were concentrated, police said, but no one was injured. Police are working to determine if the unit was specifically targeted and why.

The UPD’s Gun Involved Violence Elimination (GIVE) unit is handling the investigation. Anyone with information about the shooter is asked to call 315-223-3533, or tips can be submitted anonymously through Mohawk Valley Crime Stoppers at www.mohawkvalleycrimestoppers.com, in calling 1-866-730-8477.

This is the latest in a series of unsolved shooting incidents in the city. In one incident police continue to investigate in East Utica, a home in the 1100 block of Bleeker Street was hit by projectiles. Investigators located more than a dozen spent shell casings nearby. This incident also happened the same night an occupied vehicle parked in a driveway on Steuben Street was hit by gunfire in a separate event.
