ABC agency to mount state-funded anti-violence effort for Rochester

Part of a $2 million dollar state anti-violence fund is coming to the City of Rochester to fund an attempt to cool down gang violence and retaliation shootings.

The non-profit group Action for a Better Community will work with Rochester police to put specialists in resolving disputes without gunfire on the streets. They'll try to interrupt the pattern of shootings and retaliation over relatively minor issues.

ABC is getting more than $281,000 from the state to set up and monitor the program. It's part of a statewide initiative aimed at areas with high levels of gun violence.
