None of those who were wounded are believed to have life-threatening injuries. "I offer sympathies and support to all of the victims and their families whose lives are forever changed".

The fatal shooting early this evening (US time) did not appear to be linked to the March death.

Other senior police officials announced they would retire or leave top command positions.

Interim Police Chief Mark Simmons said tat when police arrived they found a "chaotic scene" with multiple victims.

Mr Simmons expressed frustration early on Saturday that someone had held a large, late-night party amid that tumult, apparently in defiance of a state ban on large gatherings because of the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the Gun Violence Archive, there had been 454 mass shootings across America in 2020 as of Friday.

New Cases; Five Hospitalized At BMH
No new cases were found in the Island Health region since Thursday, leaving the health authority's total number of cases at 196. Meanwhile, a total of 3,075 people are under public health monitoring due to exposure to known COVID-19 cases.

The flurry of shots sounded "like the Vietnam War", one witness told WHAM-TV of Rochester. I join the Mayor in begging this community remain calm and exercise restraint, and I ask if anyone has information that could be helpful please share it with the authorities.

No suspects are in custody, Simmons said.

On Monday, Rochester mayor Lovely Warren sacked police chief La'Ron Singletary, who she said initially misled her about the circumstances of Mr Prude's death.

They died at the scene on Pennsylvania Avenue.

The Rev. Lewis Stewart, president of the United Christian Leadership Ministry, painted a parallel between Saturday's shooting and Prude's death and called for clergy to perform proactive community outreach.

The identities of the two victims, one man and one woman, have not been made public pending notification of next of kin. Around 3 miles (5 kilometers) to the east, captured on video, a group gathered for prayer near the shooting site. I am grateful for the immediate response of Pathways to Peace and other community partners who are working to stabilize the neighborhood.
