Rochester man shot in robbery attempt

A couple waiting at a red light to pull out of the shopping plaza at Lake and Lexington Avenues was fired on overnight in an apparent robbery attempt.


The victims said a man approached the car and started shooting at them as they sped away.


Rochester Police say a 28-year-old city man driving that car realized he was shot some blocks later on Lake Avenue. Friends drove him to Rochester General Hospital where he's in stable condition with a wound to the torso. His girlfriend called 911.


Police say the city's Shotspotter system and police on patrol in the area had already heard the shots and were at the scene of the shooting when the 911 call came in.
