Police make arrest after shots fired around North Winton Village

ROCHESTER N.Y. (WHEC) — Police said they recovered an illegally possessed weapon from a 26-year-old who they arrested in connection with shots being fired on De Mallie Street near Humboldt Street on Tuesday.

The gunfire that started around 6:30 p.m. sent some residents of the North Winton Village into lockdown. After an investigation, David Morrison was charged with illegal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment.

When the Rochester Police Department responded to 911 calls for shots fired on Tuesday, they traced the evidence to a house that they believed was involved in the incident. Officers said the residents of the house refused to let them in.

Because a firearm was involved, police said they had to order a shelter in place around the house for a few hours. Eventually, police were able to get the people out of the house.

Morrison was taken to Monroe County Jail. The weapon police recovered was a loaded Glock 9mm handgun.
