Have You Seen This Man?

Utica Police released a photo of the suspect on their Facebook page. Officials say the UPD Major Crimes Unit along with the New York and New Jersey U.S. Marshall's Fugitive Task Force are looking for 27-year-old Tyrell Brown.

There is a warrant out for his arrest for the charge of second degree murder. Police say the warrant is related to the shooting incident that led to the death of Kwame Smith at the HK Restaurant and Lounge on the night of November 11th.

Police were called to the scene just before midnight for reports of shots fired at the restaurant. Lt. Michael Curley told WIBX that there were 60-70 people who witnessed the incident, but no one was cooperative with police.

Luckily, the ownership and staff at the establishment were cooperative and a suspect was able to be established. One things the police are also still looking for is the murder weapon used during this crime. Officials say it has not been recovered.

The Top 25 Most Baffling UFO Sightings Reported in New York This Year

When residents of the Empire State spot something unexplainable in the skies, they report it to the National UFO Reporting Center. There's been about 80 new sightings so far in 2023 that raised a few hackles.

NUFORC does investigate what people saw to determine if they actually witnessed alien activity or something else. Oftentime, these reports turn out to be false flags. For example; someone from NYC reported seeing a strange, square-like object in the sky on July 22. They provided a photo to NUFORC, who then ruled the person saw an "advertising banner behind a private aircraft."

However, there have been several creepy reports that couldn't be brushed off with a logical explanation. And some of these reports had photo or video evidence attached.

Scroll through New York's top 25 weirdest sightings of 2023.
