Rochester teenagers accused of attempted murder appear on separate aiding/abetting shooting charges
(ABC 6 News) – Two Rochester teens accused of participating in attempted murder in late September of 2023 appeared in court Thursday, Jan. 11 on charges of aiding and abetting a separate shooting.
Anthony Lavell Frazier Jr., 19, and Christian Avery Miller, 19, face charges of aiding and abetting 1st-degree robbery, and aiding and abetting 2nd-degree assault with a dangerous weapon on Sept. 20, 2023.
About a week later, the two were arrested related to a Sept. 25 drive-by shooting.
According to court documents, in the first shooting investigation, Rochester police met with a juvenile male who said he went to Oak Terrace to sell a video game console.
According to the juvenile, the buyers, allegedly including Frazier, Miller, and a 16-year-old opened the door of their car, told the juvenile to “give me everything you’ve got,” and shot at the juvenile’s car when he drove away.
The juvenile said the 16-year-old had a Louis Vuitton cross-body bag, from which he took a gun and fired at the juvenile’s car, according to court documents.
The 16-year-old was charged and allegedly told police Frazier was the driver, while Miller provided and took back the gun after the 16-year-old fired it.
Frazier is scheduled to appear on the aiding and abetting charges Jan. 24. Miller is scheduled to appear Jan. 25.
