Two persons were injured during a shooting spree in Brockport yesterday.
The suspected gunman, Scott Pescara, 41, is in custody after the shooting west of the SUNY Brockport College and the Brockport Central School campus, at 6963 4th Section Road.
It happened around 12:50pm Friday afternoon. Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputies say that 41-year-old Deputy, Jonathan Strong was shot in the leg. A neighbor of Pescara, 60-year-old Nellie Marshall of Fourth Section Road was shot in the shoulder.
The Brockport and Elementary School along with the SUNY Brockport campus were both locked down and all reads in the area were blocked off. Sheriff’s negotiators were able to contact Pescara by phone and then talked him into surrendering.
The situation was apparently the result of a domestic situation according to authorities. Pescara is reportedly originally from Albion.
Both victims were treated at the hospital and released.
