Rochester police report that a Genesee County man was shot in the leg while watching the Fourth of July fireworks show in Rochester. 40-year-old Daniel MacKey of Bergen was watching the sky show with his 10-year-old daughter when he felt a sharp pain in his right leg.
He saw blood.
Some nearby firemen bandaged up the wound, not realizing what it was.
MacKey sought out additional medical care in Batavia where it was discovered his wound was caused by a small caliber bullet.
His injury was never life threatening. Police do not believe MacKey was targeted by the shooter, who remains unknown.
