Police: 2 Rochester officers hurt in struggle with suspect
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — Police say two Rochester officers were injured in a struggle with a suspect over a gun.
Police tell the Democrat and Chronicle that officers approached a group of men at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday and asked one of the men for identification.
Police say the man pulled a gun out of his bag. They say that led to a confrontation and the gun was knocked to the ground.
Police say the man reached for the gun and the officers fought him for it. They say the officers gained control of the gun and took the man into custody.
The two officers were treated for minor injuries. Twenty-six-year-old Treiquan Hawkins was arrested on charges including weapons possession and assault. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer who can speak for him.
