Sherwin says he was shot in the head and died at the scene. The other shooting victims suffered graze wounds to their upper bodies and one was also struck in the leg. One is from Rochester while the other has a Chicago address.
The shooting happened just after 2 p.m. while the victims were playing basketball on a street at the Parkside Mobile Home Park, located near McQuillan Park. Sherwin says more than 10 rounds were fired and at least one residence and one vehicle were hit by bullets.
