Update: Man shot, killed in city
Rochester, N.Y. Woodman Park in Rochester was quiet Sunday evening as friends of a man who was shot and killed that morning stopped by to pay their respects.
He was a fun loving guy, said David Williams. There wasn't a bad thing anyone could say about Uncle Mike.
Rochester Police have not identified the man who was killed, but friends said his name was Miguel Bobe and those close to him called him Uncle Mike.
He had a very positive outlook on life even in the bad situations he always seen the positive outlook," said Williams.
Friends say when Bobe got out of work Saturday night he stopped at Ray Rays Bar and Restaurant on the corner of Clifford Avenue and Woodman Park.
When Bobe left the bar earlier Sunday morning he was shot multiple times and killed on Woodman Park.
Its like a family spot during the day, said Williams, when asked what the atmosphere in Ray Rays was like. Ive never been here at night, but its like a family spot during the day.
Neighbors tell us the bar can be a problem at night, but its usually just noise and traffic.
Its annoying and obnoxious, especially in the summer, said Sharon and Mark Dibolt who have lived in the neighborhood for the last 20 years.
But crime scene tape and police activity is not the norm for this otherwise quiet neighborhood.
I think I woke up like the rest of my neighbors, absolutely surprised that someone was actually shot and killed down the street from us, said (D) Mayor-Elect Lovely Warren, who lives down the street from where the shooting happened. It's actually very busy in this neighborhood this weekend as far as crime is concerned. The bank down the street was just robbed yesterday and the night before last three people were shot in Norton Village, so we are seeing an uptick in criminal activity and this is why we need to start being really, really aggressive when it comes down to dealing with crime in our neighborhood.
Crime that friends say took the life of a man they considered family.
The last conversation me and him had he was talking about prayer, real heavy talking about God, said Williams. Just his positivity - it was so attractive.
Rochester police are continuing their investigation.
Anyone with information is asked to call 911.
