Wednesday, Jaden Z. Campbell, 18, of Rochester, NY, was arrested and charged by criminal complaint with carjacking and possessing and brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.
On July 11, 2022, Rochester Police officers responded to the intersection of Resolute Street and North Clinton Ave for a report of an armed robbery and carjacking.
While officers were responding to this call, they saw the vehicle, and a chase ensued, lasting for about 27 minutes throughout Rochester, Irondequoit, and Scottsville. The chase ended with a motor vehicle accident on Quaker Road in Scottsville. Campbell exited the vehicle and ran but was taken into custody shortly thereafter.
The victim told police that while he was at 80 Resolute, Campbell came out from behind a tree with a gun and demanded all of his stuff or he would be shot.
Campbell reached into the victim’s pockets and took his car keys. After failing to start the victim’s car, Campbell told the victim to start the car, or he would be shot.
Later during the day, a concerned citizen called 911 to report a handgun in the roadway on Cranbrooke Drive in Irondequoit, one of the streets included in the case. Officers responded and recovered a 9mm pistol.
