ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Monday night, three young people were shot during a “celebration of life” in Upper Falls, for a teen who lost his life to gun violence this past summer.
During the vigil, shots rang out, and three young people were hit. A 12-year-old, 16-year-old, and 20-year old were all struck. They are expected to recover.
Keonna Junious is the mother of the 12-year-old girl struck Monday night. She provided the above video, and said it was recorded on the phone of the 20-year-old who was shot as well.
Community members can be seen standing around with balloons, in prayer, remembering the life of 17-year-old Jeremiah Baker who lost his life in June.
