Lt. Cheryl Fridley of the Rochester Police Department said the man, 57, died at 1:35 a.m. at Strong Memorial Hospital, where he had been taken by Rural/Metro Medical Services ambulance. The man, whose name was not released, had been found lying on the sidewalk in front of 56 Linnet St.

“Just after 12:30 this morning, police responded to the 911 call for the person shot,” Lt. Ron Malley said at the scene.“As units arrived, they did locate a 57-year-old male city resident with an apparent gunshot wound to the upper body.”

Malley said it was so early in the investigation that police did not yet know what led up to the shooting.

“There was some Shot-spotter activation, whether or not it was for this particular incident, again, we are sifting through all the different 911 and Shot-spotter activations," Malley said.

Fridley said investigators are following up on different leads, but that nothing definitive has been found as of yet.

The gun-related homicide was the second of the weekend in the city. A 20-year-old man, Tahje Orange, died after three men were shot about 9:50 Friday night on Boston Street on Rochester’s east side.

Linnet Street is located between Lexington and Glenwood avenues, west of Dewey Avenue.

I pray they find the degenerates that murdered this poor innocent fellow.
I keep wondering as i read the daily Rochester death count from the perpetual violence, when are they going to take action?????
Are they that stupid not to see what they've been doing isn't working?
Clearly the police have become complacent & desentcitized to the contsant murders.
Wake up and change what your doing - it isnt working!!!!

God hears, sees & knows everything you say & do every day of your life. I already know by your ignorance that you dont care about that, but god works in mysterious ways.
Karma shows up unannounced.
My peace is in knowing one day, someway, & you never know when...what goes around comes around for all of you & your kind.
