UTICA (WSYR-TV) -- A man is dead after an officer-involved shooting near the Addison Miller playground in Utica. Police have yet to confirm who fired the fatal shot.
Police got a call around 12:15 p.m. Sunday that shots were fired at the park.
When an officer arrived, he saw a man carrying a long gun in a nearby wooded area.
The officer told the man to drop the gun, but he refused. Shots were fired and the suspect was hit in the chest.
