ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — A Rochester man has been charged with murder after the fatal shooting of another Rochester man on Genesee Street earlier this month.

21-year old Troy Jones was arrested on Tuesday and has been charged with second degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree.

According to the Rochester Police Department, officers were called to the scene on Genesee and Sawyer Streets around 7 p.m. on June 17.

Upon arrival, investigators found 22-year-old Brandon McClary suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was transported to the University of Rochester Medical Center where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

“It is alleged that Jones was armed with a loaded 9mm handgun when shot McClary multiple times and killed him,” RPD officials said in a statement.

Jones was arraigned in Rochester City Court on Wednesday where Jones pleaded not guilty to second degree murder and two counts of second degree criminal possession of a weapon. He’s scheduled to return to court Thursday to be assigned a lawyer.

Police say the investigation is ongoing.
