RPD looking for driver who became upset with school security guard on Barrington Street

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Rochester Police are looking for a driver who, upset about being asked to move from the area where buses park for dismissal at a city school, flashed what appeared to be a gun.

A Rochester City School District spokesperson says at no point was a gun pointed at the guard.

This happened around 2 p.m. during dismissal at Francis Parker School No. 23 on Barrington Street. A security guard was helping to control traffic when a vehicle attempted to drive around a school bus. 

The security guard stopped the driver and tried to direct the vehicle away from the bus. RPD says that’s when the driver pulled out what appeared to be a gun at the security guard, then drove off. RPD says no students nearby were in danger. RPD says it’s collaborating with RCSD to identify the driver.

The district says the driver is not affiliated with the school.
