ROCHESTER, N.Y. – A man, 42, is dead and a security guard was injured in a double shooting inside a bar at the East End across from News10NBC’s station on Monday morning.

Rochester Police said the shooting happened just before 2 a.m. during a bar fight at Flour City Station at the corner of East Avenue and Scio Street.

Officers and civilians tried to save the man’s life after he was shot in the upper body but he ended up dying inside the bar. The security guard, who was shot while trying to break up the fight, was taken to Rochester General Hospital in a private car. He is expected to survive.

No suspects are in custody. News10NBC saw officers going in and out of Flour City Station and people running down the street. East Avenue between Scio Street and Mathews Street was taped off but the area has since reopened.

RPD Captain Frank Umbrino said the investigation won’t interrupt the route of the Memorial Day parade, which will march down East Avenue.

“At this point, this is an isolated event. It was an altercation inside the bar,” he said. “There was a holiday party going on site. There is no concern for anybody that’s coming down here to enjoy the parade this morning.”

Umbrino said RPD has responded to several incidents overnight, putting a strain on the department’s resources, but officers are working to keep up.

“The officers, at the end of the day or the end of the night are gonna be able to go home to their families,” he said. “The victim’s families aren’t going to have their loved one home for the holiday today, unfortunately. Again, it’s a sad state when people act in a matter such as this and are killing other people.”
