Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - A Rochester man was arrested and charged with a homicide back in June.

Police arrested Bryan Lavar Gifford on Wednesday in connection with the fatal shooting of Antwan Matos Hines.

On June 30, Hines was shot on West Broad Street around 7 p.m. Hines, a 34-year-old Rochester man, was seriously injured. He died ten days later from his wounds.

Gifford was taken into custody Wednesday for his involvement in a robbery on Mazda Terrace.
