Rochester police continue to look for a suspect in what they say was a targeted shooting next to the RTS Transit Center Friday morning.
The hub remained open and police say there is no danger to the public.
A 23-year-old male was standing on the sidewalk near the transit center when he was shot in the upper right leg. He was taken to a nearby hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
"It does appear that the individual was targeted," said Rochester Police Department Captain David Smith. "The incident has to do with the individual and not the transit center itself. The transit center has remained opened throughout the incident."
"I got off the bus and I was walking through here," said Chloe Goodrum of Rochester, who was nearby when the shooting happened. "By the time I got past the parking ramp here, I heard a noise and I’m like that could have been like backfire from a car or whatever."
People near the transit center said they generally feel safe in the area, but they believe there could be more security outside the building.
"They need to have more police officers down here patrolling," Goodrum said.
"We have security inside, we have buses coming in and out of here all the time,” said Tom Brede, an RTS spokesperson. “It’s a safe facility.”
The victim entered the building seeking help after he was shot, officials confirmed.
"Aside from the fact that it occurred outside and near the transit center, and that the gentleman went inside for help, there’s really no link to the incident today and what’s happening here at RTS and the transit center," Brede said.
