A 24-year-old Rochester man was injured in a shooting on the City’s west side. It happened around 12 p.m.

Police tell News10NBC they were called to Jay Street for a shotspotter activation and possible fight. When officers arrived, there was no fight but they did find a man who had been shot once.

While officers were on the scene, they received a description of suspect. One of the officers saw a man who fit the description but when he went to speak with him, he took off. Police were able to catch up with him on Smith Street and take him into custody. At this time, it’s unclear if he is involved in the shooting.

The victim was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The investigation is ongoing.
