Investigators are looking for the suspect they say shot a 23-year-old man multiple times in Hunt’s Mobile Home Park in Farmington on Wednesday evening.

The shooting happened on Terri Drive where 23-year-old Luiz Garcia Cruz lives. That’s close to Route 332, the New York State Thruway, and Finger Lakes Race Track where he works.

We went to the mobile home park Thursday morning to speak with neighbors including one woman who witnessed the violence.

“There was a bunch of guys. I’d say 10.” Beverly Dyson was on her computer around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday night when she thought her next door neighbors were having a party. “And then I heard pop, pop, pop and I thought it was firecrackers and then I see the guy coming out and he fell right in the middle of the road and he was all bloody and then the guys took off.”

Dyson called police to the scene and as they searched for the gun and other evidence last night, she heard the victim was in critical condition. His friends took him to a local urgent care but he was transferred to Strong Memorial Hospital.

Police think the suspect or suspects may have left the scene of the shooting in a dark blue SUV, possibly a Chevy Trailblazer, or possibly a white sedan

The Ontario County Sheriff's Office would like you to call them at 585-394-4560 if you have any information.
