Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputies have just released the name of the suspect in the deputy involved shooting in Pittsford Wednesday afternoon.
Sheriff’s Deputies say the suspect is 22-year-old Vincenzo Zagari of Ogden.
Zagari is currently in guarded condition at Strong Memorial Hospital.
The incident began after deputies responded to a call for shoplifting at the Pittsford Wegmans around 4 p.m. Wednesday.
Deputies say Zagari crashed a stolen car he was driving into another vehicle in the Pittsford Plaza parking lot, then attempted to carjack a woman at gunpoint.
Zagari then ran across Monroe Avenue.
Police say he flashed a weapon at a deputy, which prompted the deputy to shoot Zagari.
Several charges are pending against Zagari, including larceny from Wegmans, possession of a stolen vehicle, attempted aggravated assault against a police officer, resisting arrest and menacing.
The Monroe County Sheriff's Office said they previously arrested Zagari back in June 2012 for the shooting of Angel Figueroa in the town of Wheatland. Zagari was charged with first degree assault and criminal possession of a weapon. He is currently on probation for that crime.
Investigators are currently working with law enforcement agencies regarding Zagari's connection to other crimes in the area. The investigation is ongoing.
