ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Rochester police officials are investigating a shooting that left one man dead Friday.
Authorities say around 1:30 pm Friday, officers responded to Bay and Copeland Streets for the reports of shots fired.
Police say they arrived and found one man dead with multiple gunshot wounds in a house on Copeland Street on the city’s northeast side.
Police say there are no suspects custody and the investigation is ongoing.
Police say around the same time as the Copeland investigation was underway, a man was dropped off by private vehicle to Rochester General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries sustained from a gunshot wound. Officials say they do not know if these incidents are connected at this time.
However, Rochester police officials say they do not believe the Copeland Street shooting is connected to another fatal shooting that also occurred Friday in Rochester — where a man was found dead with gunshot wounds outside a home on Lyell Avenue.
“Unsure if those are related at this time but we do have a deceased male at Copeland as well. At this time we don’t believe we don’t have any indication that the Lyle Av8 incident and the Copeland street incident are related in any way,” said Deputy Chief Mark Mura, Rochester Police Department.
