(Rochester, N.Y.) - Fourteen-year-old Tyquan Rivera lived on Dayton Street, not far from where Officer Anthony Di Ponzio was shot.
The shooting itself, and now the arrest of their young neighbor, has left people on this quiet city street shaken and shocked.
Isaiah Johnson says the shooting of Officer Anthony DiPonzio scared him and not just because it happened on his street.
"I want to be a cop myself, and this puts a little more stress on me," Isaiah said. "He got shot in the back of the head, he has a family--people don't think about that."
Johnson said said he doesn't know Rivera, but he wonders how this could have happened.
"Where do 14-year-olds get guns? They should be in school," he said.
Many neighbors did not want to identify themselves because they're afraid.
A neighbor who lives two houses from Rivera's family said, "My heart goes out to both families. I am sorry for what happened. I have two teenagers; I pray for both families."
Rochester Police Union President Mike Mazzeo said the arrest is part of the healing process for police and the community but he also said things have to change so it doesn't happen again.
"It's a wakeup call; we have to pull together and find out what's broken," Mazzeo said. "If we're not safe, no one's safe."
