Rochester shooting: At least two dead, 14 injured in tragedy of epic proportions
Shots broke out at about 12:25 a.m. Friday in a backyard party less than two miles from downtown, according to a report. When police showed up, they found a chaotic scene and two victims — a man and a woman both between the ages of 18 and 22 — dead of gunshot wounds.
The hail of gunfire sounded like “an all-out warzone,” witnesses said.
“So many people going in so many directions, so many different ways, driving on the grass, trying to get out of here,” said a witness interviewed at the scene by ABC 13 in Rochester who gave his first name as Billy.
The names of the victims have not been released.
The shooting did not immediately appear to be connected to the anti-police brutality protests that have rocked the city since disturbing video footage surfaced earlier this month of the fatal arrest of Daniel Prude.
The city’s mayor pleaded to his constituents late Friday to cooperate with police in the wake of the backyard shooting.
“I’m begging everyone to remain calm and exercise deep restraint as RPD investigates what happened here and seeks those responsible,” Mayor Lovely Warren said in a statement.Filed under mass shootings , rochester , shootings , 9/19/20
