Man charged with killing Rochester officer pleads not guilty – New York Post

A Massachusetts man charged with second-degree murder, attempted murder, assault, and weapons charges pleaded not guilty to the charges during an arraignment Saturday morning.

Police found Vickers in an abandoned house and believe he used a gun that was found in the shooting that killed two officers. Vickers was released from prison on May 24, and a lawyer representing him did not immediately respond to a message.

Rochester police officers Anthony Mazurkiewicz and Sino Seng were shot while investigating a murder in the city when a man shot 17 gunshots at their unmarked police vehicle, police said. One of the victims was a 15-year-old girl who was in her home when the shots were fired.

Police searched a vacant house near the shooting scene and found Vickers hiding in a crawlspace on the second floor. Vickers complied with officers and a loaded 9 mm handgun was recovered, police said.
