Edison Tech student shot walking to bus stop released, police looking for leads

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The Edison Tech student shot while walking to a bus stop Wednesday morning has been released from the hospital, police said Thursday.

The shooting happened around 6:30 a.m. in the area of Alameda Street and Dewey Avenue. Early Wednesday, the Rochester Police Locust Club, which represents officers, said the student was shot on the way to school, but it was later clarified the student was heading to the bus stop.

On Wednesday, the RPLC account Tweeted a mother told police her son left their home for school and came back with a gunshot wound. The investigation scene was across the street from the Aquinas Institute, but, as we know now, the student does not go to the school.

Additionally, an RPD spokesperson told News10NBC "somebody saw something" as it relates to the shooting itself. The spokesperson stressed the importance of coming forward with information.

Due to the student’s age, the spokesperson said the student’s specific age, and other specific info could not be shared. All they could confirm was the student was treated and released.

Rochester Police and investigators from the United States Marshals Service arrested a man in an investigation just around the corner from the shooting, but told News10NBC the investigation was separate from the shooting.

Police encourage anyone with information to call 911, they can remain anonymous.
