2 dead, 2 injured after Halloween party shooting on State Street


ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Two people are dead and two are injured following a shooting around 1 a.m. Sunday on State Street.

Officials say when they arrived at 429 State Street for a disturbance call that possibly involved a shooting, they found a victim with a gunshot wound. The victim was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital. While police investigated they were notified that three other victims were taken to SMH in private vehicles.

36-year-old Glenn Burden and 31-year-old Travis Johnson were both pronounced dead at the hospital.

The other two who were injured suffered non-life threatening injuries. Both are male city residents in their twenties.

Police say the shooting took place at a Halloween party.

“We’re estimating there were at least 200 people there at various points in time. When the police had arrived, obviously there were much fewer people there,” Rochester Police Captain Frank Umbrino said.
