News Release

(Friday, May 6, 2022) – This morning, two Rochester Police Department Officers were almost murdered as they responded to a call for help from a city home. It was a miracle they got out of there safely.

It is a testament to their bravery and training that they were able to apprehend the suspect and prevent others in that home from being hit by gunfire.

We should all be grateful to the men and women of the Rochester Police Department. They choose to put themselves in harm’s way every day to protect and serve the people of Rochester.
