Manhunt Ends Peacefully

Manhunt Ends Peacefully

Rochester, N.Y. – The suspect in Wednesday's double-shooting on Pullman Avenue in Rochester surrendered himself to police without incident Thursday.

Shortly before 4 p.m. police surrounded 48 2nd Street; 26-year-old Marcus Freeman, surrendered himself without incident. 

"We knew he was in there, we surrounded the house and prepared for any eventuality that could take place, and then he surrendered," Deputy Police Chief Mike Wood said thanking the community for the effort they put into the manhunt. "We appreciate the attention to this in the community and the media for getting the information out. As a result of that we received a lot of tips."

Freeman in recent months has had other run-ins with police. Freeman was indicted in June for the alleged rape of a child who was younger than 13 back in March. Then in May he was shot on Pullman Ave., the same street where he shot and killed 27-year-old Walesy Alvarez and wounded a 34-year-old man who is still listed in guarded condition at Strong Hospital.

Police say Freeman will likely be arraigned on Friday.
