Rochester police are reporting two deaths in a triple shooting in the Edgerton neighborhood.

It happened around 7 last night at a home on Costar Street, a few blocks east of Dewey Avenue.

A woman was found dead at the scene, and another woman died at the hospital. A third woman was wounded and is expected to survive.

Police say there is no danger to the public, but there is no word of any arrests.

Statement from Greece Police Chief Michael Wood:

On behalf of the Town of Greece Police Department, I would like to express our collective sorrow and grief with respect to last night’s events in the City of Rochester. Tiffani Gatson had been a police officer in the Town of Greece since September 2018 and was recently assigned to the road patrol working the afternoon shift, 2 pm – 10 pm. She was off-duty when this incident occurred. We are working in cooperation with the Rochester Police Department and New York State Attorney General’s Office, which has jurisdiction over this criminal investigation.
Unfortunately, we have seen events of this nature occur all too frequently and struggle to find answers in the aftermath. The effects are far-reaching, from those who have lost loved ones to others throughout law enforcement organizations when a police officer commits such a horrible act, to our entire community. It is simply devastating, and so many people are hurting right now. Allowing people to grieve is of paramount importance to me and providing the appropriate level of support within our organization.
In closing, I would like to extend our most sincere and heartfelt sympathies to the families of everyone involved last night and all others impacted by this unspeakable tragedy
