ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — A Pennsylvania man was arrested on Wednesday for the killing of a Rochester man in October of 2020.
According to the Rochester Police Department, 26-year-old Steven A. Berrios-Rivera was charged with second degree murder for the shooting and killing of 33-year-old David Alvarez.
On October 31, Alvarez was shot about 13 times in a parking lot on Clinton Avenue. He was taken to Rochester General Hospital but ultimately died due to his injuries, according to RPD.
“As a result of the investigation that took place, Steven A. Berrios-Rivera was identified as the shooter,” officials said in a release.
“Berrios-Rivera and the victim, David Alvarez, were not previously known to each other. The murder was the result of an altercation that arose from a motor vehicle accident.”
The search for Berrios-Rivera led to Pennsylvania — where he is a resident. On Tuesday, RPD’s Major Crimes Investigators and members of Rochester’s Office of the U.S. Marshals Felony Fugitive Task Force traveled to the City of York.
On Wednesday, officials executed a search warren and Berrios-Rivera was taken into custody. He is currently being held in Pennsylvania and will be extradited back to Rochester.
