ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Police officials say a man is dead from a gunshot wound after being found outside a Lyell Avenue home Friday morning.

Police say the call came in around 9:40 a.m. for a man with a gunshot wound on the side of a house.

When they arrived, they pronounced him dead.

The victim hasn’t been identified at this time and there is no suspect. Officials say they are in the very early stages of their investigation.

“We haven’t confirmed an ID of the deceased person, so we don’t know exactly if that’s a family member, but certainly if it is we try to work with them. It’s a trying time in their life so we’ll do the best we can to keep them calm and help them get through this,” Michael Perkowski of the Rochester Police Department said.

RPD said they’re looking into whether this was gang related. They do not believe there’s a threat to the public.
