Investigators continue searching for people at Henrietta restaurant at time of fatal shooting
HENRIETTA, N.Y. — Deputies are searching for people that were at Trio the night a woman was shot and killed.
Rochester woman Alyssa L. Taylor, 28, was shot inside the restaurant during a private event and died after being rushed to Strong Memorial Hospital.
Deputies say investigators are trying to identify additional people who were at Trio on December 17, who may have information.
“By the time the police arrived, a good number of people had already left so we weren’t able to identify them or contact them to see if they had information,” Investigator David Bolton with the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said.
Bolton said he does not believe Alyssa Taylor was targeted.
“I can tell you that I believe more than one person was shooting.. I can’t say if they were shooting at the same time, at each other. I don’t have the answers to that but I do believe there was more than one person shooting and we do not believe she was the target of either one of those,” he said. “She made it back toward the bar, where she collapsed.”
Bolton said he believed there were somewhere in the area of 300 to 350 people at the private party.
Investigators are looking for any video from inside or outside the venue.
“That’s our goal, is to try and bring some closure to the family or give some answers to the family. Because right now, they really don’t know and I’m saying she’s not targeted, I don’t believe she was targeted, there’s nothing that would suggest she was targeted –so that leaves the family with a question of why or what, and that’s what we’re trying to get to,” Bolton said.
