14 officers involved in deadly shootout with suspect

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say 14 police officers were involved in a deadly shootout with a Rochester man suspected of killing his ex-girlfriend and wounding his son and another man.

The Rochester Police Department says 13 of its officers and a Monroe County sheriff’s deputy fired their weapons at 39-year-old Terrell Blake after he crashed a rental van at the end of a chaotic vehicle chase across the city Wednesday morning.

Terrell was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say earlier that morning he fatally shot his 28-year-old ex-girlfriend and wounded her 25-year-old boyfriend. Officials say he then went to another part of Rochester and wounded his 20-year-old son.

Authorities say Blake shot at police officers during the chase. None were injured.

Police say they’re trying to determine how many shots were fired by officers and Blake.
