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. On July 16th, 2015, the suspect was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, along with a sentence of 55 years to life in prison, to be served consecutively for aggravated murder of a police officer and attempted aggravated murder of a police officer, respectively.

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.
