The correct story does not involve an Avenger, but rather a truck, just as my kids had witnessed on East North Street

Yes, you were right near where my kids and their father were. They turned onto Forge Ave and in their case the shots being fired were coming from a truck, therefore there are two vehicles involved. My kids said as they got to Route 14 at the end of Forge Avenue they saw the truck again flying up route 14 North towards the Thruway, Police chasing them at a high rate of speed. At this point, the kids and their father saw on the bridge overpass over route 14 on Route 96 the Red Avenger was pulled over with cops and the pick up truck was still being chased. Therefore, it sounds as though these two vehicles were all up to something together. Pretty scary if you ask me. Thank goodness my children and their father are safe and did not get hurt. They didn't know what the noise was, they thought gunshots but then said it sounded like fireworks too, then when they saw the truck passing people recklessly and speeding off they figured it out that it was indeed gunshots. Geneva's going to hell in a hand basket quickly, broad daylight and shooting out of vehicles. Little Rochester sounds like a very appropriate name for this City lately~!
