A violent end to a prom night for some local students. It apparently started with a fight at a downtown Rochester hotel and ended with shots fired at a Henrietta restaurant early Friday morning.
The Monroe County Sheriff's Department says there was an incident at the Hyatt earlier in the evening. Then the teens went to Denny's where the dispute between the two groups continued.
One suspect opened fire outside, then entered the crowded restaurant and continued firing. No one was hit.
"This was a very dangerous situation. This is a restaurant full of people. Patrons, young adults just trying to have a nice prom night. Have a little breakfast just like they're supposed to when they're kids. And a staff of people just working hard during the middle of the night and somebody just comes in and starts shooting bullets at them. Completely unacceptable," said Lt. Glenn Maid, Monroe County Sheriff's Department.
The sheriff's department is looking for one suspect who fled the scene. Denny's has reopened.
10 minutes from my house. I wonder how I would have handled myself if I was a patron in that restaurant.
That is just crazy. I know what I would have done.
