WATCH: Press Conference About Murder of Jalen Everett

Police are investigating the murder of Jalen Everett. The 24-year-old was charged in the 2015 Boys & Girls Club shooting, but later acquitted. Everett was accused of being one of three people in a car that drove past the Boys & Girls Club on Genesee Street in August of 2015 and sprayed a large crowd with gunfire. Three young men — Jonah Barley, Raekwon Manigault & Johnny Johnson — died in the shooting. Three other men were injured. A jury convicted Everett of second-degree murder. However, after the verdict, a juror claimed that another juror had made racial comments and discussed information that the jury had not been allowed to hear. A judge overturned the guilty verdict. Rochester Police Chief La'Ron Singletary held a press conference on Sunday calling for the community to allow police to handle the investigation.
