ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The New York State Attorney General's Office Thursday identified the Rochester Police officers who shot and killed a Rochester man on Glasser Street back in May. 

The AG's office says Patrol Officer Blake Langdon and Patrol Officer Donald Flood Jr. shot and killed Mark Gaskill after police say he brandished a handgun during a vehicle stop. 

Rochester Police Captain Mark Mura says officers initially responded to a ShotSpotter activation on Lyell Avenue around 4:20 a.m. on May 14.

As officers were responding they saw the wanted vehicle and pulled the car over on Glasser Street near Masseth Street.

Police say as they tried to open the car door to talk to Gaskill, he brandished a gun.

Officers fired nine shots and Gaskill and he was pronounced dead at the scene. 

The two officers involved remain on administrative leave.
