Rochester Police Lt. Michael Perkowski said that officers were called to 86 Karnes St. There, police found Kelvin Harris Jr. Harris,a Rochester resident who was a Karnes Street resident, was pronounced dead at the scene, he said.
The slaying marks Rochester's 40th homicide of the year; the 17th since the start of June. Earlier in the week, a year-old Rochester woman died from injuries she suffered when she was attacked by someone with a hatchet on Chili Avenue over the weekend. Her death, which police say did not appear to be a random incident, was announced by police Wednesday afternoon.
The rash of shootings and homicides have become tragically too common this year and prompted city police and officials to seek extra help from federal law enforcement. Notably, the brazenness of some recent homicides that occurred on busy streets and parking lots in board daylight has some Rochester residents on edge.
Many people don't feel safe coming forward or want to get involved.
Others simply don't trust law enforcement following in-custody deaths of George Floyd, Daniel Prude and others last year. More: 'People are dying in these streets. More: Rochester part of national surge in shootings, homicides in communities upended during pandemic.
