Pink bag conceals modified shotgun

Three men were arrested Friday night after police found a modified shotgun concealed in a pink duffle bag in a car they were driving in.

Police were called about 11:15 p.m. Friday for a report of a fight.

By the time police arrived to the scene, the suspects had fled the area but they were later stopped on Ashley Place.

A Mossberg 500, 12-gauge shotgun, which had been shortened for concealment, was found in a pink duffel bag in the trunk. A plastic bag containing marijuana was also found in the car.

A witness identified the three suspects and said that Sheldon Allen had displayed the shotgun.

Sheldon W. Allen III, 20, 145 Lock St., Apt. 2; Shamir W. Allen, 18, 193 Washburn St., Apt. 3, and Dominque X. Pitts, 22, 62 Jackson St., Rochester, were charged with third-degree possession of a weapon and unlawful possession of marijuana.

The suspects were held without bail.
