GeneseeNow —  Thursday, October 17, 2013

Do you worry about crime when you go to Rochester? Latest crime stats out yesterday show shootings and robberies are up this year.

More than 170 shootings so far…and robberies are up 15% over last year. The police chief blames some of that on a rash of cell phone thefts.

The murder rate is the same as it was this time last year…30 murders so far in 2013 and 10 of them are still unsolved.
