RPD makes arrest in deadly shooting last December on Glenwood Avenue

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Police have made an arrest in the deadly shooting of a 23-year-old man back in December on Glenwood Avenue near Finch Street.

U.S. marshals and Rochester Police arrested Dante Weiford, 26, on Tuesday evening after a traffic stop. He is accused of killing Ziheir Roberts during an argument. Officers found Roberts in the early morning of Dec. 2 with a gunshot wound and he was taken to hospital, where he died.
