"We heard gunfire, pop, pop, pop, pop, pop," said one neighbor as he reflected on Friday’s shooting.
Police were called to the 1100 hundred block of 7th Avenue NW after multiple rounds were fired at a home Friday night. Three people were inside at the time and several shell casings were recovered from the scene.
ABC 6 News spoke to several neighbors in the area about what they heard. One says they believe there was some sort of argument and the shooting could have been some sort of retaliation. Another described it as a moment where you jumped out of your seat.
If there’s one thing in common these neighbors said, it’s that this is a relatively safe neighborhood and for crime to happen in the area, is pretty rare.
"Reason, why I bought this house, was because this area here, it was pretty crime-free. But we’ve been having small instances around here lately. Might be getting close to selling the house now."
Several neighbors say there have been smaller incidents that could have led up to Friday night’s shooting and the area has become less safe over the last couple of years.
Rochester Police are asking anyone with video or information related to the investigation to reach out. You’re asked to call 507-328-6800, or submit a tip through Crime Stoppers.
