ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Rochester Police say two men are dead after being shot on North Goodman Street after leaving King & Queen Cantina.
RPD says officers responded to the area of 1753 North Goodman Street around 1:30 a.m. Sunday, for reports of people shot. At the scene, officers found two men in their 40s who were shot. They were pronounced dead at the scene.
Police believe the two victims left the bar at 1730 North Goodman Street and started to walk to their car. As they were getting into their car, they were shot.
Police explain the motive for the shooting is still unclear, but they do not believe this was a random act of violence.
Eric McGill said he is a Rochester native who said that more needs to be done to reduce crime in the neighborhood.
“You need to make Rochester more secure. You need to get rid of that bail reform. You need tougher laws and you also need more surveillance. You need to be held accountable. Nobody is being held accountable anymore,” McGill said.
There are no suspects in custody. On the King & Queen Cantina Instagram page, a letter is posted informing patrons that they would remain closed Sunday out respect for the victims and their family.
The Major Crimes Homicide Unit is investigating. Anyone with information is encouraged to call 911, the Homicide Unit at 585-428-7157, or Crime Stoppers at 585-423-9300.
