ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — A Monroe County grand jury in the case of the man charged in the shooting death of Rochester Police Officer Anthony Mazurkiewicz indicted him Wednesday morning.

Kelvin Vickers, 21, was scheduled for a preliminary hearing that was later waived.

Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley said a grand jury has voted to indict over the past few days, however specific charges are not being announced just yet.

“The grand jury has heard evidence over the last two days. They have voted an indictment, and now I’m just going to consult with the family and Rochester Police Department as to when this grand jury indictment shall rise. I want to be respectful to RPD and obviously Officer Mazurkiewicz’s family,” Doorley said.

Doorley also told News 8 she would be the prosecutor in this case. Vickers was recently released from the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Lancaster, Massachusetts at the end of May after being charged and sentenced for carrying a firearm and ammunition without a license.

Investigators say Vickers approached the patrol vehicle of Officer Mazurkiewicz and Officer Sino Seng on Bauman Street before firing 17 rounds at the officers from 10 to 15 feet away.

He is charged with second-degree murder, attempted murder in the second degree, and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon among others.

Vickers is currently being held in Monroe County Jail with no option of bail.
