The Rochester Police Department says three people have been shot and one killed in an incident late Wednesday morning on North Clinton Avenue.
It happened about 11:30 on North Clinton Avenue near Rialto Street. Police have the area blocked off. One person was dead at the scene. Another is seriously injured and one received non-life threatening injuries and is expected to recover.
Lt. Gregory Bello told reporters that people have to stop solving disputes with gunfire when the community has many non-violent means of resolving them.
While Rochester police were investigating that North Clinton Avenue shooting, they were also called to Pardee Street and Joseph Avenue where a man was stabbed in the chest. The victim...a man in his 30s...was stabbed inside a store, and was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital with potentially life threatening injuries.
And another person was shot in yet a third violent incident today, this time on South Plymouth Avenue on the West Side. The victim is a man in his 30s who was shot in the leg and is expected to recover.
