Rochester, NY -- The suspect in one Rochester's double shootings last week has been charged by a grand jury with at least one felony, meaning the case is moving from Rochester City Court to Superior Court.
Assistant District Attorney Kelly Wolford tells WHAM 1180 the formal charges against Marcus Freeman will be unsealed within three weeks. He surrendered and was arrested on second-degree murder and attempted murder charges last week after a 24-hour manhunt.
Freeman is the suspect in the slaying of Walesy Alvarez and the wounding of her boyfriend on Pullman Avenue. At the time of the shooting, Freeman was free on bail on a rape charge lodged in April. He himself was a shooting victim on Pullman Avenue in May.
