A 24-year-old man suffered minor injuries Wednesday afternoon, after he was shot on Jefferson Avenue after buying marijuana.
The Rochester Police Department says that man was shot near Frost Avenue at around 4 p.m.
Officers say the victim had purchased a small quantity of marijuana when two men--one of whom had a shotgun--approached him and demanded he hand over the marijuana. One of suspects shot the man in the left arm and then fled on foot. Police say both men were about 5'6'' and weighed 130-140 pounds. One was wearing dark clothing and the other had a white shirt and blue jeans.
The investigation is still ongoing and police ask anyone with any information to call them.
