Rochester man pleads not guilty to drive-by shooting
Rochester, N.Y. - A Rochester man pleaded not guilty Tuesday morning to a murder charge, but his lawyer insists the real killer is still on the loose.
24-year-old Jose Rosario was charged as an accomplice in the drive-by shooting of Jorge King-Hernandez, 33.
According to police, King-Hernandez was stopped at a red light on Upper Falls Boulevard when the gunman pulled up next to his vehicle and opened fire.
Rosario's lawyer, Matt Hagen, said that on February 6 his client was doing a favor for his aunt's boyfriend and that's why he was behind the wheel that night.
"He had no weapon and more importantly he had no knowledge that this individual was going to do what he did," said Hagen. "I think that authorities and prosecutors should be more worried about the fact that the shooter is still out there and still needs to be located."
The prosecutor handling the case said the investigation is ongoing and they are looking for a second suspect.
