Officers from the Rochester Police Department found a man in his 20s suffering from at least one gunshot, according to WROC-TV.
The man was taken to Strong Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Private vehicles took three other victims to hospital, police said, according to a WHEC report.
One of the victims, a man in his 30s, was pronounced dead.
The other victims, men in their 20s, are in a stable condition.
Cops said it was not clear what led to the shooting.
An investigation is ongoing and there are, as yet, no suspects in custody.
Just two days previously a 17-year-old youth was shot dead on the west side of the city.
Police said at about 2.45 pm, Bryson Simpson and three of his friends had just got off the school bus and were walking on the sidewalk on Otis Street, when a suspect was walking on the opposite side of the street.
Officers say at some point the suspect turned and fired multiple gunshots at the group. Simpson was struck in the upper body and pronounced dead at the scene.
Last month, one person was killed and 13 other people injured in a shooting at a hookah lounge in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The deceased victim was an adult male, and two of the injured are in critical condition, Captain Dori Koren told local media.
The rest of the victims, all believed to be adults, were listed as stable.
An altercation between at least two subjects broke out at a party in the lounge, Captain Koren said.
“During the altercation, the subjects exchanged gunfire, striking multiple people,” he added.
