Two female students were struck on campus with what is believed to be a BB gun from a passing Jeep Nov. 7. One was treated at Strong Memorial Hospital and released while the other, a student at the Eastman School of Music, declined medical care. Additionally, three city residents were shot off campus and released from Strong.

The vehicle is described as a late model “hunter green” Jeep Cherokee with tinted windows, according to UR Security.

The first two letters of the license plate are “MJ.”

Around 2:30 p.m., the first victim was walking towards Intercampus Drive from Meliora Hall when a pellet struck the left side of her face. Shortly afterwards, a second undergraduate was shot in the arm while walking on Library Road near the Dandelion Square crosswalk, according to Director of UR Security Walter Mauldin.

At 2:45 p.m. a pedestrian was shot near the intersection of Brown Street and West Main. A fourth victim, a young teen, was struck near the intersection of Goodman Street and Rockingham Street around 3:15 p.m. Another city resident was hit while riding a bicycle on State Street near the Empire Brewery around 3:45 p.m.

The Rochester Police Department and UR Security are investigating.

If you were on campus between 2:15 and 2:30 p.m. Nov. 7 and believe you might have seen anything that may aid the investigation, contact UR Security at x53333 or the RPD at 911.
