ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP Modified) — Police say a gunman shot into a crowd after a basketball game outside of a Boys & Girls Club in Rochester, killing three people and wounding four others.

The drive-by shooting happened late Wednesday on Genesee St. in Rochester. Police say there was no problem at the club before the shooting.

Officials have not yet released the names of the victims. Police say the injured, all males in their 20s, have gunshot wounds that don’t appear to be life-threatening.
