ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — News10NBC took a look into the background of the man who allegedly shot a police officer in the neck Tuesday morning.
Rochester Police say the suspect, 54-year-old James Hunter, is a lifetime parolee who spent the last few decades in and out of prison.
When Rochester Police arrested Hunter Tuesday morning, he was actually charged for a traffic stop incident that happened back on Aug. 29, 2019.
During the stop, officers discovered that he was wanted on a parole absconding warrant and a petit larceny warrant from the Town of Irondequoit.
“When the officers approached the vehicle, Mr. Hunter allegedly put the vehicle in drive, and struck a parked vehicle in front of him, and as he turned to get out of the way and flee the scene he struck a Rochester Police Officer causing injuries in which she was hospitalized for,” Capt. Frank Umbrino said.
During a press conference following a mass shooting in Rochester, New York, on Saturday night, Rochester Police Department (RPD) Captain Frank Umbrino unloaded on Democrats’ policies, specifically bail reform, for wreaking havoc in the neighborhood.
Hunter is described as four-time convicted felon.
According to the New York State Department of Corrections website, Hunter was sentenced back in 1983 on an attempted first-degree robbery charge in Queens. In February of 1987, he served time for two counts of attempted robbery in the second degree again in Queens. In August 1993 Hunter was in prison again for robbery in the first degree in Nassau County. He was released in 2004 and was paroled for life.
