Rochester Police investigate shooting death of a 16-year-old
RPD says that they got the call about the teen shot on Pennsylvania Avenue just before 10:30 p.m. on Monday when they were investigating another shooting on North St. at the David F, Gantt R-Center.
That shooting victim was a 45-year-old man who had non-life threatening injuries.
While officers were investigating that incident, they responded to Pennsylvania Avenue near 4th Street and found 16-year-old Jaquise Davis who suffered at least one gunshot wound to his torso. Police, fire and ambulance crews tried life saving measures but the youth was pronounced dead at Strong Memorial Hospital.
Davis lived on Pennsylvania Avenue.
Investigators are still trying to find out more about the circumstances that led up to the shooting. There are no suspects in custody so far.
Police do not believe the two shootings are connected, but the investigation continues and anyone with information about the incidents is asked to call 911, or CrimeStoppers at 585-423-9300.
