ILION, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a 42-year-old central New York man has been shot dead in a home in the village of Ilion.

Herkimer County District Attorney Jeff Carpenter tells the Observer-Dispatch of Utica that a 20-year-old female also was shot in the leg during the incident Tuesday afternoon. She was treated and released at an area hospital.

Carpenter says the woman lived in the residence along with a toddler and two teenage children she’s related to. He says the victim did not reside in the home. The nature of the man’s relationship to the woman and children has not been released.

Police say the public is not in any danger.
