BATAVIA, N.Y. — One person is dead, another is in serious condition after one was shot and another was stabbed in Genesee County late Thursday night.
Batavia Police said the incidents occurred on Central Avenue, a street that has seen an increase in emergency calls to police.
Both victims were taken to a local hospital. One of the two victims, identified as Terry J. Toote, 41 of Batavia, has since been pronounced dead.
Investigators determined that the other victim, Nathaniel D. Wilson, 30 of Batavia, is allegedly responsible for fatally stabbing Toote. Wilson was treated for injuries and arrested after his release. He was charged with second-degree murder.
Two others were arrested Friday in connection with the incident.

Both Blackshear and Urvizu-Hanlon were arraigned in Batavia City Court and taken to Genesee County Jail without bail pending future court appearances.
According to Batavia Police, there was a disturbance at the hospital stemming from family and friends of Wilson and Toote. The hospital was placed in lockdown as a precautionary measure. More officers were called to the hospital to handle the situation.
