In a media briefing held earlier on Wednesday, police say Blake was "clearly on a mission" as he targeted family members over a domestic dispute.

At 9:41 a.m., police say a woman was shot dead in a home on Post Avenue near Arnett Boulevard. A man was also shot in the home. He suffered non-life threatening injuries.

A third victim was shot on Francis Street and ended up at School 25 on North Goodman Street.

Officers began chasing the suspect who was seen driving a U-Haul truck recklessly through the city. Multiple officers fired at the suspect after he began shooting. Police say it's unclear at this time who shot and killed the suspect.

Due to the ongoing investigation, the Rochester City School District announced there will be transportation delays for students. The delays are expected in the areas of Bay Street, Clifford Avenue, and Goodman Street.
