After announcing they had a possible suspect in custody, Utica Police have now filed second degree murder charges in connection with this weekend's homicide on Whitesboro Street.

On Monday morning, investigators officially charged 20-year-old Dontay Horning with murder and criminal possession of a weapon for allegedly gunning down 24-year-old Kaeron Henderson. Henderson was found shot, lying on the ground in a grassy area between the road and sidewalk shortly after midnight on Sunday morning in front of a home at 1506 Whitesboro Street.

Officers had been called there for a report of multiple shots fired.

Henderson, 24, was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
