2 dead, 14 injured in mass shooting in Rochester, NY
Rochester shooting ‘like the Vietnam War’ leaves at least 2 dead, 14 wounded. A manhunt was underway early Saturday in Rochester, N.Y., after a shooting at a backyard party left at least two people dead and 14 wounded, according to reports. The flurry of shots sounded “like the Vietnam War,” one witness told WHAM-TV of Rochester. A heavy police presence was seen in the area of the Rochester Public Market soon after 2 a.m., the Democrat and Chronicle of Rochester reported. It was unclear how many suspects were being sought. The 14 wounded range in age from 17 to 23 years old, and were taken to two hospitals with what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries, police said. Police responded to calls of gunshots around 12:25 a.m. and were met with 100 to 200 people attempting to flee on foot and in vehicles, Umbrino said. The shooting occurred at a house party where a limited number of people were invited, but people from two nearby parties "infiltrated" the house and at some point, an altercation ensued and escalated, Umbrino added. This is a wild situation my thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who is involved with this and to the families of the victims. Check out the link to read the full story.
