ROCHESTER N.Y. (WROC) — Officials from the Rochester Police Department say three people were shot on the city’s west side Thursday afternoon, including a 3-year-old.
Authorities say officers responded to an address on Glendale Park near Lake Avenue around 1:30 p.m. for the report of multiple people shot.
Police say when officers arrived on scene they found three victims with gunshot wounds: A woman in her 20s, a man in his 20s, and a 3-year old child.
Officials say the victims were transported to Strong Memorial Hospital for treatment. All three were initially described with non-life-threatening injuries, but police later said the child’s condition was downgraded and thus the 3-year-old’s injuries were changed to life-threatening. However, around 5:40 p.m. police issued a statement saying the child’s condition had improved and the injuries were then considered non-life-threatening again.
Authorities say they believe a domestic violence situation led to the shooting.
Officials say the suspect is a male who fled the scene and remains at large. No description of the suspect has been made available at this time.
