ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A murder, caught on camera is one of, another three homicides in the last 24 hours in Rochester.
The deadly shooting on West Ridge Road brought out police again, as local advocates struggle to stop the violence. Police have not yet identified the victim from the Black Bear Pub shooting, but they did confirm he was in his 30’s. He was found dead on scene with multiple gunshot wounds to his upper body. In new surveillance video, recorded from a nearby shop, caught the moments leading up to the shooting.
In the video you see multiple cars driving around the Black Bear Pub parking lot early Saturday morning. The original video is graphic, but at one point we see what looks like a man being shot and falling to the ground, seconds after shots go off, you see people running and taking cover. About eight hours later police responded to another homicide on pioneer street. Two men, both in their 30’s were shot. One was dead when police arrived, the other is in stable condition.
"We are talking to people right now I do not believe the aspect is a stranger we believe it it’s most likely domestic related but again it’s just too early,” Captain Frank Umbrino said, from the Rochester Police department.
Later Saturday night, Irondequoit Police started a suspicious death investigation when they found a woman dead, following a check on her wellbeing on the corner of Culver Road and Nixon Drive. There is no information being released on that investigation right now.
Meanwhile, police have identified one of the victims from a shootout on West Avenue Friday, who they say was not an intended target. He was just inside a parked car when almost two dozen shots were fired. A second victim in that shootout is reported in stable condition.
Rochester’s Major Crimes Unit has been working multiple homicides, one day after the city was put into a state of emergency over the violence. Out-reach teams across the community say they’re overwhelmed
"We’re exhausted, we’re tired, we don’t understand why does everything have to resort to a gun? Why does it always have to boil down to a gun, why can’t it be a conversation,” Toni Nelson said, who is a member of SNUG, “Should Never Use Guns”.
Toni Nelson says her husband and her son were both murdered. She says for the last five years she’s been on a mission to help anyone, especially youth headed down a dark path.
"We want to get to the ones that are shooting and try to figure out why, and what can we do as far as resources and support, to get them to change their mind set about being in the streets,” Nelson added.
All of these incidents are still under investigation. So far, no arrests have been made in any of these cases. Anyone with information is asked to call police.
