2 arrested in shooting death of 19-year-old man in Rochester

ROCHESTER, N.Y. ((DailyNews)) — Two people have been arrested in connection with a fatal shooting last month in Rochester, New York, police said Friday.

Kyrique Massey, 31, and Sohn Travis, 32, are charged with second degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon.

Mathew Williams, 19, was killed and two other people were wounded in the April 9 shooting on Monroe Avenue near Woodlawn Street.

Police say Massey and Travis each fired at Williams. He was struck at least three times and died at the scene, police said.

Massey, who also has a pending harassment case in Rochester City Court, was arrested Wednesday in connection with Williams’ killing.

Massey pleaded not guilty at an arraignment and is jailed without bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Monday.

Massey’s lawyer said, Paul Guerrieri, said he maintains his innocence and looks forward to confronting the accusations in court.

Travis was arrested Thursday and is scheduled to be arraigned Friday. He has a felony conviction that bars him from owning a gun, police said.

Online court records did not list a lawyer who could speak on his behalf.
