Utica Police release name of weekend bar shooting victim

As police continue to investigate a deadly weekend shooting in the parking lot of a Utica bar, we are learning more about the man who died.

The Onondaga County Medical Examiner's Office positively identified the victim as 23-year-old Andre Oliver-Kennedy of Utica. It ruled he died from a single gunshot wound.

Police were called to the parking lot of Two J's Bar on Rutger Street minutes before 1:30 Saturday morning, where they found Oliver-Kennedy lying on the ground. He later died at an area hospital.

Investigators are asking anyone who may have been in the area - or in the crowded bar - and saw what happened, to give them a call.

They aren't sure whether Oliver-Kennedy was the intended victim.
