Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren ordered the immediate suspension of seven police officers involved in the death of Daniel Prude. She also rebuked Police Chief La’Ron Singletary for his handling of the case, including a failure to inform her of the full details of the March 23 incident until early August.
The actions were announced at a press conference late Thursday afternoon. The steps came hours after members of City Council sent her a letter calling for stronger actions in response to Prude’s death.
