UPD make second arrest in freeride shoot that left 1 paralyzed
Utica police believe they have arrested the shooter involved in a shooting earlier this month that left the victim paralyzed.
Cops say they had information the suspect in the case was at a location on Jefferson Avenue. After monitoring the scene, police said they saw this suspect, Abdirhin Mohamed, exit the house, get into a vehicle and leave.
This vehicle was stopped shortly after and Mohamed was taken into custody. The 19-year-old is charged with first degree attempted robbery, first degree assault and second degree criminal possession of a weapon.
Police believe Mohamed, Hicks and another person were leaving a party that evening and were taken to the 800 block of Bleecker Street. However, once they arrived, the group began hitting the driver and a front passenger in an attempt to rob them. At one point, one of the victims was shot in the back and is now paralyzed, police said, and Mohamed is believed to be the one who pulled the trigger.
Earlier this week, Utica police arrested and charged Tahjer Hicks, 20 with First Degree Robbery and First Degree Assault in connection with the November 12 shooting.
Announcing the arrest on Facebook, the UPD also asked you to keep the victim in your thoughts and prayers:
“Based on medical evaluations so far, it appears the paralysis is likely to be permanent. We ask that you keep him in your thoughts and prayers as he and his family go through this very difficult time.”
