ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The man accused of killing a 41-year-old inside a bar on East Avenue on May 29 appeared in court on Friday morning.

Officers say Burney shot Hinds at point-blank range, killing him. Another gunshot struck and wounded a security guard at the bar that night. The hearing was highly emotional for the victim’s family.

“I’m very mad and sad for my children. They don’t have a father. He came back here to be with them. And then he took his life,” said a family member.

Despite attempted life-saving measures from civilians and officers, Hinds died at the scene. He had previously been deported from the United States.
