02 shooting /kh/ Web/md UPDATES TO COME

By John Weiss

A house was shot at early Monday in the same part of Rochester where bullets struck two vehicles several weeks ago.

Rochester Police Lt. Bruce Sherden said neighbors reported three shots fired at about 5:10 a.m. When officers arrived at the home in the 400 block of 11th Avenue Northeast, they found two shell casings in the street. A slug was found in the frame of the door.

The people living at the home said they weren’t aware that they were shot at until police arrived, Sherden said.


However, Bob Johnson, who lives in the house, denied there was any shooting. "I didn’t hear no shooting," he said Monday afternoon. "It’s crazy."

No one was injured, Winters said.

In the afternoon of Aug. 15, shots hit two vehicles on Fifth Street Northeast near Calvary Cemetery. In that incident, shots were fired just blocks from busy Silver Lake Park and a playground where several hundred children and adults were playing. That shooting last month, came on the heels of a shooting across town in northwest Rochester. In that case, too, no one was hit, but bullets struck two buildings. Also a man suffered a head wound when the gunman struck the man’s head with the gun.
