ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — A 15-year-old was shot in broad daylight Wednesday afternoon, officials with the Rochester Police Department said.

Just after 2:45 p.m. officers responded to a residence in the 100 block of Emerson Street for the report of a person shot. Upon arrival, officers located a 15-year-old city resident suffering from a gunshot wound to the lower body.

He was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital for treatment of his non-life-threatening injury.
