UPDATE: Homicide Victim was Acquitted in 2015 Boys and Girls Club Shooting

UPDATE: Rochester police have confirmed that the man killed in the weekend homicide was 25-year-old Michael Mathis, the same man who was found not guilty five years ago in the 2015 triple homicide outside the Boys and Girls Club.

He was shot and killed late Saturday night in a parking lot at the corner East Avenue and Union Street.

Police haven't made an arrest or nailed down the motive.

A co-defendant in the homicides, Jalen Everett, was acquitted at his second trial and was killed in 2019.

A third defendant, Johnny Blackshell is serving a life sentence.
