Police say 27-year-old Dominique Wilson, of Rochester, was shot at least once in his upper body around 9:45 p.m. Wilson was transported to URMC where he was pronounced dead about a half hour later.

Wilson is the fourth victim to die as a result of gun violence in Rochester in a week. No arrests have been made in the case.

Thursday, Rochester’s Pathways to Peace held a news conference addressing the latest violence, saying they’re ready to help.

“We want to help people to learn how to deal with issues without reverting to violence,” said Michael Brooks, SR., Pathways to Peace. “It’s okay to be upset. It’s okay to have a disagreement. But we want you to understand  we want to teach you a way how to have those understandings and disagreements by sitting down and talking them out whether it’s a mediation or we’re just sitting down talking. Pathways to Peace we’re sick and tired of our young people being murdered.”

“Pathways to Peace” has a hotline to call if you need help resolving an issue peacefully: 585-303-7489.

They say they’ll also be looking into hosting outreach training to teach other agencies and people in the community how to approach young people and teach them about mediation.
