A person in Utica, New York, called 911 on Saturday after seeing blood coming from the ceiling of the apartment.

Officers went into the apartment and discovered what was actually blood dripping from the ceiling onto the floor, Utica police said in a press release. Officers went upstairs to the apartment above to conduct a welfare check on the people inside. They knocked and answered, and a man came out “covered in blood,” police said. He immediately locked the door behind him and was taken into custody while officers conducted further investigations.
