Rochester, N.Y. – City police have made several arrests in a homicide and subsequent chase that occurred Wednesday Night.
Pictured above left to right Christopher Carter, 21; Dwyane Tucker, 22; and Shaquill Battle, 21; all from Rochester are accused of shooting 21-year-old Jemel Lockhart at his home on Santee Street. Lockhart died as a result of the shooting.
“It appears to be a target and definitely not a random act,” says Deputy Police Chief Mike Wood. “It’s a drug related situation; it’s terribly unfortunate but drugs and illicit types of activity breeds a very dangerous lifestyle.”
Officers were alerted to a fleeing vehicle by people at the scene. Carter was arrested that evening by police after a vehicle and foot chase.
