One person is dead and another wounded in a shooting incident in Rochester Monday, according to Rochester police.

The shooting took place around 2:20 p.m. at the Parkside Mobile Home Park in the southeast part of the city, according to the Rochester Post-Bulletin.

Police say the two victims were playing basketball on an outside court when the suspect fired several shots at them and then fled on foot, KTTC reports.

The first victim died at the scene, while the second was apparently shot in the leg, according to KTTC. He was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Other people were in the general area when the shooting occurred, including children, but nobody else was hurt.

Police are searching for the gunman, whom they describe as a Hispanic male with a slender build, who is about 6 feet tall. He had been wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans and a red bandana over his face, KTTC reports.

Police blocked off traffic on Marion Road near the site of the shooting, and residents were told to stay in their homes and lock their doors, according to the Post-Bulletin.

A nearby school, Longfellow Choice Elementary, was placed on lockdown after the incident, KTTC notes. A school district spokeswoman said classes continued during that time and a "controlled dismissal" took place at the end of the day to ensure the safety of students and staff.

An assistant manager of the Parkside Mobile Home Park told KTTC none of the people involved in the shooting live in the park.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
