Rochester Police Investigating Mother’s Day Shooting
Police Captain Casey Moilanen said an officer patrolling West River Dr. Northwest reported hearing 2-3 gunshots shortly before 5 p.m. She then reported seeing a 30-year-old Rochester man running towards her from the west.
Moilanen said the investigation so far indicates the man who ran towards the officer and an 18-year-old Rochester man who fled to the west of the shooting scene were the apparent targets of the gunfire. Officers determined the gun shots came from a residence in the 2800 block of Riverwood Ln. Northwest.
While no shell casings were found at the scene, police did report a wooden railing and an outdoor umbrella appeared to have been hit by a bullet. No injuries were reported at the scene and no one has checked into a hospital with a recent gunshot wound, Moilanen said.
Investigators are working to learn whether or not the gunfire came from inside of the home. Officers interviewed a 44-year-old man and 24-year-old woman who live at the home, according to Moilanen.
The shooting remains under investigation as of Monday morning. Moilanen said the shooting does not appear to be random. So far no arrests have been made.
