BROCKPORT, N.Y. (AP) — Police say an upstate New York man firing shots from his second-floor window injured a neighbor and a responding police officer before surrendering.
Monroe County Sheriff Patrick O’Flynn says the man began shooting randomly from the house early Friday afternoon. That was hours after a dispute with his partner.
A male deputy was hit in the leg and a female across the street was hit in the shoulder. Both were hospitalized with injuries not considered life threatening.
Police say a woman who lived with the gunman and their two children were not in the house. A negotiator eventually coaxed the man outside.
The shooting briefly caused a lockdown at the nearby state university in Brockport.
