ROCHESTER, New York — Authorities say a man has been arrested after two people were killed and four others wounded after a shooting at a house party in Rochester.

The Democrat and Chronicle reports (http://on.rocne.ws/1O88n7d) 30-year-old William James was arrested Saturday on a murder charge.

Police said between 30 and 50 people were in a home in the Marketview Heights neighborhood when shots rang out shortly before 4:30 a.m. Saturday.

Authorities said one of the survivors remains in critical condition. The other three have non-life-threatening injuries.

It was not immediately clear Saturday whether James had an attorney who could comment on his behalf.

The shooting was the second this year at a party on the same street, Woodward Street.
