Rochester, N.Y. - Rochester police are mourning the loss of one of their own. An officer was killed last night in the line of duty for the first time since 1959.

The officer died at Rochester General. The suspect was also shot and wounded. He underwent surgery at the hospital.

An innocent bystander was also shot. That injury is not considered life-threatening.
