Rochester Police early Saturday morning released 42 minutes of redacted body-worn camera video from officers at the scene of an incident that happened early Friday. That is when officers shot and killed a suspect who was sitting in the back of a car during a traffic stop on Glasser Street.
On Saturday night, police identified the man as Mark Gaskill, 28, of Rochester.
New York State Attorney General Letitia James is investigating the incident. It is now standard procedure in the state for the attorney general to investigate incidents where police cause someone’s death.
