Homicide Suspect In Custody

The man sought by police for a double shooting on Wednesday is in custody.
Police had been searching for Marcus Freeman, 26, for almost 30 hours. According to the Rochester Police Department, Freeman was taken into custody at a house on Second Street in Rochester around 4 p.m. Thursday.

He was wanted in the double shooting that claimed the life of a woman and seriously injured a man. The shooting happened around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday on Pullman Avenue in Rochester.

Walesy Alvarez was shot in the back seat of her car. She later died from her injuries. Martin Moore, 33, remains hospitalized in guarded condition.

A lot of manpower went into the search. Police said they received numerous tips from concerned residents that ultimately led to Freeman's arrest

"We received a number of tips, anonymous and otherwise. A lot of people coming forward. It was also like that with the community - all hands on deck. It was in our police department as well, as far as people reaching out to their sources. Everybody knew the severity of these crimes and over the last several hours, we were able to hone in on this particular address and feel confident that he was in there," said Deputy Chief Mike Wood, Rochester Police Department.

During the search, Freeman was described as armed and dangerous. He has a criminal record and was recently indicted on a rape charge in June.
