Rochester, NY -- Rochester police say a suspect in an armed mugging Thursday on Lyell Avenue is now charged with second-degree murder in a fatal shooting.
Xavier Nelson is charged in the August 19th shooting death of Willie Little in the 700 block of South Plymouth Avenue. Three other people were wounded by gunfire. Police said at the time that Little possibly wasn't the intended target.
Police say the investigation isn't over and can't comment yet on whether Nelson will be charged with wounding the others. Neither can they say yet whether he was a person of interest in the shooting before the Lyell robbery.
