Police: Six people shot at four locations in Rochester
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — In a little more than 13 hours, six people were shot at four locations in the city of Rochester this weekend. Two of them were seriously hurt.
News10NBC asked neighbors and business owners in the areas of the shootings what they saw and heard.
Rochester police say no one is in custody for any of the shootings. It is unclear if any of the incidents are related in any way.
Police believe one of them happened in the 100 block of South Union Street in the East End just before 2 a.m. That’s not far from the Strong National Museum of Play.
Here is the timeline and locations of the weekend violence:
In all, five men and one woman were shot in four separate incidents.
One woman and one man were shot in the 500 block of Chili Avenue Saturday at 1:58 p.m. Less than four hours later, at 5:48 p.m. Saturday, one man was shot on Flint Street.
At 1:55 a.m. Sunday morning, officers responded to the call for a man shot in the 100 block of South Union Street. They found a 20-year-old with a gunshot wound to his lower body. He is recovering at Strong Hospital.
The owner of a convenience store on South Union Street told News10NBC the victim was shot outside his store. The owner Christian Apuy was not present at the time, but he’s been talking with neighbors about what happened.
"Joe heard the shot, he didn’t know it was shots, but it was like three gunshots going off. And then I got Tommy, and Tommy’s like, ‘What happened at your store in front?’
I’m like, ‘I don’t know, ’cause I’m not here. It was closed. You know what I mean?" adde Apuy.
At 3 a.m. Sunday, two men were shot in the 1000 block of North Clinton Avenue. Neighbors there believe the shooting took place near Sullivan Street. Both victims are expected to survive.
Anyone with information is asked to call 911.
