Rochester Man Found Guilty of Murder

A 35-year-old Rochester man has been found guilty of second degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon in the shooting death of Sherod Hurst.

The Monroe County District Attorney's Office says Cleveland St. John was found guilty in a bench trial. He's facing up to 25-years-to-life in prison when he's sentenced on September 27th.

Prosecutors said St. John and Hurst got into a fight near the corner of Thurston Road and Flanders Street, leading St. John to shoot Hurst in the back as he tried to get away.
