Police Officer Daryl Pierson was shot and killed near the intersection of Hudson Avenue and Warsaw Street while involved in a foot pursuit of a suspect following a traffic stop.
The man that Officer Pierson was chasing had been paroled only three weeks prior while serving a sentence for attempted armed robbery. A bystander was also wounded by the gunfire.
Officer Pierson was a veteran of the National Guard and had served with the Rochester Police Department for eight years. He is survived by his wife and two young children.
