Man shot near a “large party” overnight in Rochester



Rochester, New York — According to Rochester police officials, a 32-year-old non-city resident has non-life-threatening injuries after being shot near a “large party” overnight on the city’s west side.

Officers responded to the 600 block of Jay Street for a Shot Spotter activation around 2:45 a.m. Thursday, authorities say.

According to officials, an investigation showed gunshots had been fired in the immediate area, but there was no evidence of 911 calls to suggest anyone had been shot.

Around 3:30 a.m., officers responded to Strong Memorial Hospital for the report of a man who arrived via private vehicle with a gunshot wound, police said. They confirmed the 32-year-old non-city resident was shot in that same 600 block of Jay Street.

The man was shot at least once in the upper body and is being treated at Strong for injuries that are described as non-life-threatening.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to call 911.
