1 person killed after shooting in southside of Rochester, RPD investigating


ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Police have identified the person who died after a shooting in the southside of the City of Rochester early Wednesday morning.

According to the Rochester Police Department, officers responded to the area of Elgin and Seward Streets around 2:02 a.m. for the report of gunshots fired. Upon arrival, officers found Rodney Moore, 55, unresponsive on the porch of a home with at least once gunshot wound to the upper body.

Officers as well as AMR attempted live saving measures, but Moore was pronounced dead at the scene. There are no suspects in custody.

“If anybody knows any information contact the RPD we’ll take any help we can on this one,” RPD LT. Michael Perkowski said. “It was two o’clock in the morning, very cold, not a lot of people out here. We’re going to have to do some legwork on this one to see if we can find somebody that saw anything.”

“We believe it’s an isolated incident, nothing else happened overnight to make us believe the community at large is in danger.”

The area was shut down for the investigation, but have since opened back up to traffic.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or email MajorCrimes@CityofRochester.gov.
