Police investigate fatal shooting on Rochester’s west side


ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — A Rochester man was killed in a shooting on the city’s west side Monday.

According to the Rochester Police Department, two parole officers were in the area of Cameron Street off of Lyell Avenue around 11 a.m. when they heard gunshots.

They found Jaquan Hill, 26, with multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers believe the suspect left on foot and the investigation is ongoing.

“As usual, we are in the very early stages of the investigation,” Capt. Frank Umbrino said. “We do have several people we are talking to. I’m not going to say we have anybody in custody, at this point in time we do not. We do not have a motive for this shooting.”
