ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — North Clinton Avenue experienced its second shooting in 24 hours Wednesday.

It was reported that a male in his 30s was sent to the hospital for life-threatening injuries. Another male — 72 years old — was also sent to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police said an investigator was driving on North Clinton about 1:20 this afternoon— when he heard a barrage of gunfire go off down the street. He headed towards the noise and found two men wounded on-scene. 

Police are saying they are facing a tremendous amount of gun violence in the city– and they need the public’s help to help turn back this trend. Rochester is looking at another very violent year. Captain Sam Lucyshyn with the police department said more needs to be done. A large number of the 240-plus shootings this year have happened in this area– and police say dedicated law enforcement resources vary day to day.
