Three Men Shot, One Killed on Rochester's North Side
One person is dead and two others injured following a shooting on the city's north side last night. Rochester police say it happened on Boston Street around 10 p.m. Friday.
According to police, one of the men was shot in the upper body. They say the 21-year old victim was taken to Strong hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
Police say the other two men are facing less serious injuries and were taken to Strong and Rochester General Hospital.
One of the victim's mother tells us they were gathered at this corner for a vigil in the neighborhood for her brother, Tommy King, who was shot and killed a year ago today, when they heard what they thought were firecrackers but turned out to be gunshots.
"The violence is ridiculous, everyone is just getting jealous of everyone out here. Especially with these guys, they've never had any problems," said Daniela Pittman, one of the victim's mother.
"There was never any gangs, there was never any drug dealing or anything they were just out being a family, getting together to enjoy, not enjoy but a celebration of life of what we've missed. He was there, he was a good person and that's what we all did all day, for 364 days."
Pittman says her son, Treyshon was grazed in the head and that he is back home.
Police say they do not have any suspects in custody as their investigation continues.
