Authorities say a man is in guarded condition at Strong after being shot multiple times outside his house on Terri Drive, in Farmington.

Luiz Garcia Cruz, 23, of Terri Drive in Farmington was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital Wednesday night around 6:30pm. Cruz remains in Guarded condition at Strong, after a surgery due to multiple gun shot wounds. 

Ontario County Sheriff's say that Cruz recently moved to 419 Terri Drive and is employed as a horse groomer at the Finger Lakes Race Track.

The alleged suspect is still at large after fleeing the scene in either a dark blue SUV possibly a Chevy Trailblazer or a white sedan. Authorities believe this is not a random act of violence and that the shooting may have occurred due to an altercation between the victim and the shooter.
