I understand the only hostage was a cat being held by the man. The police apparently shot and killed the feline as well.

This guy was probably depressed and wanted to die, so he wanted the police to shoot him.

When someone points a gun at officers even after being told to drop it, the officers have every right to use deadly force to protect themselves. This is a very sad situation for not only the man's family and friends (I offer my condolences), but also for the police officers who will now have to deal with their own emotions after this tragedy.

To Tom in North Chili, not to belabor the argument but it's in Greece not Parma. Jimbob is correct. The street has a Hilton mailing address. Did you wonder why the Greece police shot him if you thought he was in Parma?

Suicide by cop. What is there to investigate?

Why the hell does it matter what color his skin is?

You people are buffoons.

Was it Roderick Scott?
society will not be that lucky. but to be honest in my opinion the the cops ,killers,are going to hire parinello he has a prefabricated defense should it be needed or not,it was James Cervinis fault and his parents are also to blame
all because they let an unstable drunk loose instead of jail he got an hail of bullets that is.
I am sorry for the oficers i believe the officers hope they are al right
what is wrong with that area you would accept these horror stories from rochester but the burbs. there is a seriousness to the shift in crime thatneeds adressing. simple ruel crime does not disappear when it is pushed out of 1 area it surfaces in another
so sad

You people are talking about someone you didn't even know. WE know this family and if you knew them you wouldn"t be so quick to pass judgement.

Good job Greece Police!! If you want to take hostages, steal from people, etc--don't be doing it in the Town of Greece, you'll end up 6ft under! I am happy with these results. Finally the innocent people can have justice!

Well he has to be white, as not only his name and picture is left out, but also left out is that this all started because he was just arrest and released for DWI.
Another white guy out there drinking and driving, putting all our life's in danger.
But at least Rod Scott is free after you continuously blasted him in here. Your not a black man! Your a white man with a hidden agenda.

I use to live in Hilton before I moved into the City of Rochester.
I'm glad I got out of the hellhole.

Give it a rest why don't you, Roderick Scott is free redardless of what any body wanted,this poor guy is dead, he probably suffered from some mental disorder and addiction that he did not know how to ask for help for and the Greece Police has been through enough in the last year that they do not need no more crap. So let's think of a way to stop the madness and quit trying to destroy everything around us,
