Syracuse, NY --One man has been charged in connection with a high school graduation party shooting early this morning after being found shot outside of Utica's Two J's bar and leaving two dead. Police continue to search for possibly three other suspects involved, they said.

Around 8:30 p.m. January 17, the nearly 8-second shooting happened on the corner of Rutger and Morris streets, police said. The shooting was captured by surveillance video in the area. The footage was released to the public Thursday to help identify the individuals involved.

A man in a green striped shirt, identified as Robert Lindo, 28, can be seen firing a gun at several people in the crowd around 8:30 pm on June 22, 2013 police said.

Lindo was charged with reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a weapon and criminal use of a firearm, all felonies. He suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the leg at the party. No other injuries were reported, police said.

Police later learned that Lindo fired several shots into the crowd during the shooting. They don't yet know the motive behind the shooting or why it started at the party.

Anyone who can help identify the remaining men from the video is asked to contact police ASAP!

Why was a 28-year-old man at a high school graduation party?
Because people from utica are very emotionally underdeveloped and less sophisticated than normal people and they want to "hang out" with teenies until they're 50+.

See: Frank Meola. He's 50+ and just got caught slammin a busted looking 28yo who so far, few people can understand why either one would actually want to fck the other! Not kidding that's the general gossip leader on this one.

Back to the crime problem- Common Sense 101 kids. You need better law enforcement and a DA who isn't a corrupt degenerate criminal himself like Scott McNamara. Just about anyone there is a poor parasite who couldn't swim or survive outside the clusterfuck cny mud hole. They breed people for stupidity there by rewarding the dumbest, least capable and most personally obnoxious fat fuckin retards they can or lure into that corrupt cesspool phony "lawman" world.

<quoted text>Did you ever graduate from high school? At all? You don't think people graduate in December??? Don't be stupid! People graduate then have a party ASAP after the event all the time. Doesn't really matter the month. All they need is a reason to celebrate. Too bad these dummies chose 2J's!
read the article mentions a guy shooting into a crowd on june 22nd. The article doesn't make sense. And yes I graduated from high school and college. And to have a graduations party for a family at 2 Js is trashy and obviously there was underage drinking that should be looked into.

This is total BS. Please disregard someone trying to mock my good name and journalistic skills. Some people are just purely jealous of talent.

Maybe if almost every single pubic parasite that works in the highest cost-per-capita police dept in NY got off their vaginas and actually did something besides talk racist shit online all day there wouldn't be such a problem.

Maybe if they policed with as much thought and energy as they do with their endless self promoting and seeking praise and glory they'd have this one written up already.

Gufaaaaaaaaw! Picture THAAAAAAT!

Just waiting for SIX WHOLEFUCKING MONTHS where this pack of no account loudmouths and braggart wifefuckers earned their shrift like real respectable LEOs do without some major downsboy eruption.

That's some police farce you have there! History and their results do not lie.

Hell, don't close it. Put up a fence and let them shoot each other. All lowlifes and losers; no loss. Saves on police time, saves on public assistance, Someone did us a favor.
