chief_david_mooreRochester, N.Y. - The Rochester Police Department wants to call special attention to domestic violence, so they’ll use a new a grant to create a response team.

This comes as police investigate the city's fourth domestic violence related homicide this year.   

Cedric St. Louis, 31, is accused of shooting his live-in girlfriend Stuphonia Thomas, 30, in the head.  

The police chief says a group of officers will be trained specifically on how to respond to domestic calls.

"It's a situation where emotions obviously are running very high, but if we could just get in the middle of those emotions, so that we can provide some type of support, we may save a very tragic situation from taking place," Police Chief David Moore said.
