RPD investigating double shooting on Chili Ave
ROCHESTER, N.Y. – The Rochester Police Department is investigating a double shooting that took place on Chili Avenue Wednesday afternoon.
The shooting happened at 2 p.m. on Chili Avenue near Post Avenue, near Rochester Prep Middle School. An off-duty officer from a neighboring agency was on Chili Avenue at the time of the shooting. The officer began immediate life-saving medical treatment to both individuals.
Police say a man in his 30s was shot in the upper body and taken to Strong with life-threatening injuries. An 18-year-old woman was also shot in the upper body. She is in stable condition.
“Any time we have shootings, especially broad daylight, two people shot, two young people shot, it’s certainly a frustration both to the department and to our community,” says Lt. Greg Bello with RPD. “And that’s why we continue to work towards solving these.”
RPD continues to investigate this incident and asks anyone with information to call 911.
