ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — One man was killed and three others injured after a shooting on Monday night.

According to the Rochester Police Department, 23-year-old Tyshawn McConniughey, of Rochester, was killed in the shooting.

Officers responded to the 400 block of Lyell Avenue for the report of ShotSpotter activity, RPD officials said inn a release. Upon arrival, they were flagged down by a woman in her 20s suffering from a gunshot wound.

It was then they found McConniughey in a vehicle in a parking lot near by with a gunshot wound to his upper body. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The other woman on scene has since been released from the hospital.

“A short time after the shooting on Lyell Ave two males (both in their 20s) showed up separately at Rochester General Hospital and University of Rochester Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.  They were both dropped off by private vehicles,” a release from RPD reads.

On Tuesday evening, Cpt. Frank Umbrino confirmed that the incidents were connected. “They are not suspects in the murder of the victim and this is an ongoing investigation. Both are males in their 20s and City of Rochester residents.

Anybody with information is asked to call 911 or email MajorCrimes@cityofrochester.gov.

This marks five people shot over the last 24 hours — one man was shot earlier near Angle Street — and is now in stable condition.
