Man arrested for early October shooting on Jefferson Ave
ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Authorities arrested a 38-year-old for a shooting that happened on October 5 on Jefferson Avenue near Champlain Street.
Brian Jones faces assault and weapons charges. Rochester police said he shot a 50-year-old, who survived after officers responded and he was taken to Strong Hospital for treatment.
U.S. Marshals took Jones into custody on Friday at a home on Tremont Street and said they found a handgun loaded with 16 rounds on him. Jones was forbidden from carrying a gun because of a 2013 drug conviction. He finished his parole supervision from the conviction earlier this year.
Jones was taken to Monroe County Jail and arraigned in Rochester City Court.
