Woman Shot claim results in 2 arrested and house searched for drugs, guns & more

On May 15th, 2024 at approximately 2:45 PM Utica Police units were dispatched to a residence on the 100 block of Barton Ave regarding a female who was claiming to have been shot at while attempting to retrieve property.

Upon arrival, officers were able to locate the victim who repeated the claim. Officers then set up a perimeter around the home and attempted to make contact with someone at the residence. Eventually, a male came to the front door, and while speaking with him another male attempted to flee out the back door. Based on the totality of the incident both males were detained and a protective sweep of the residence was undertaken to ensure that no injured parties were inside.

While inside they located a female who was detained per the investigation as well. Furthermore immediately upon entry, the officers noticed, in plain view, a long rifle and significant narcotics-related contraband.

Following the sweep, it was determined that a search warrant would need to be applied to attempt to locate the handgun, as well as the narcotics-related evidence.

The residence was secured and ultimately the warrant was signed and executed.
