Man Dies at Scene of Apparent Stabbing on City’s Northeast Side

Overview

A Rochester man is dead after an apparent stabbing on the city’s northeast side Wednesday night.

Officers were initially called for a reported fight on Clifford Avenue, near Goodman Street, around 9 p.m. When they got there, a second report came in for a man with serious injuries about half a mile away on Renwood Street.

That man, 50-year-old Eric Lofton of Rochester, was pronounced dead at the scene.

“AMR responded to the scene and attempted to save his life and couldn’t, unfortunately,” said Lt. Naser Zenelovic with the Rochester Police Department Major Crimes Unit. “At this point we’re investigating both scenes as being related.”

Police said Lofton rode his bicycle over to Renwood.

Police said there are no suspects in custody at this time.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911.
