A double shooting on Rochester's west side left one man dead and another seriously injured. It happened at the corner of Colvin and Maple streets.

It happened just before 2:30 p.m. Wednesday and is the 34th homicide in Rochester this year.

Police say a 911 call reported a male had been shot at the intersection of West Avenue and Ames streets. The investigation revealed the the shooting actually took place at the corner of Maple and Colvin. Police list 219 Colvin as the initial crime scene.

"Two victims were seated in a vehicle, at which point another male entered the vehicle and started shooting at the victims. Both victims were struck in the upper torso. The suspect did exit the vehicle and no arrests have been made at this point. The victims then drove to Ames and West where someone called 911 and reported the injuries," said Sgt. Elena Correia, Rochester Police Department.

Police say both victims were shot in the head and transported to Strong Memorial Hospital, where Steven Killings, 24, of Thomas Street in Rochester later died. Police say he was the passenger in the vehicle.

The driver, a 29-year-old Rochester man, remains hospitalized with what police describe as non-life threatening injuries. Police believe the shooter and victims may be familiar with one another.

"We are looking at all video footage in the area and any other video footage that we can find within the route as well as doing neighborhood checks and anyone that has information, we're checking with them as well," Correia said.

The suspect fled on foot east on Maple Street. Police say it's a black male in his late teens, about 5'9", wearing a black North Face jacket, black hoodie and jeans with holes. They obtained that description from surveillance video and the surviving victim.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911.
