UTICA — A 15-year-old boy was found with a loaded handgun at Proctor Park in Utica Sunday afternoon, according to the Utica Police Department.

Police said they were called to the park at about 5:10 p.m. for a group of people being disorderly. While speaking with the group, police said one of the officers spotted a handgun magazine in one teen's pocket, and then the outline of a handgun in the other pocket.

A search of the teen uncovered a loaded, 9mm handgun and the magazine with ammunition, police stated. The teen, a 15-year-old male, was taken into custody on one count of second-degree possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a firearm, police said. He is scheduled to appear in court.

The identity of the teen was not released due to his young age.
