Police say Markwaun Williams, 24, of Rochester and Justin Siler, 26, of Rochester were taken to Rochester General Hospital in private vehicles.

On Thursday night, the Rochester Police Department said Williams was pronounced dead and Siler was in critical condition.

In an update early Friday morning, police announced that Siler had died.

Mayor Lovely Warren released a statement on social media, saying in part, "My people...we have another way to resolve disputes. The pain caused to our city, family and friends that lost their loved one is not worth it. The pain you will inflict on your loved one as they sit there watching the justice system hold you accountable is not worth it."

There are no suspects in custody. The investigation is still ongoing.
