Rochester's homicide total has surpassed the number of deaths from all of 2011.
Two separate homicides happened over the weekend.
One was a shooting on Veteran's Place.
A 32-year old Rochester man was killed.
Rochester Police say Vinh Dac Phan turned himself in for the shooting.
That shooting happened on Saturday night.
A second homicide happened on Sunday morning on Copley Place.
Police say 37-year old William Klick was shot.
They are still looking for suspects.
These deaths bring the total homicides in Rochester to date to 32.
In all of 2011, there were 31 homicides.
Beyond the statistics are families.
One young Rochester man went through similar grief nearly 5 years ago and he is working to help change minds in the city.
Darius Taylor is just 22 years old.
He watched his brother get gunned down in 2007.
"By the time I got to the door she was in the middle of the street, and all I saw was my mom darting, then I heard the gun shot, I seen the gunshot, seen my brother run a couple steps and then I saw him drop," said Taylor.
His brother Chris Jones was just 16 years old.
"To think about the lost memories and to think about his voiced silenced is very hard," said Taylor
On YouTube you'll find a tribute from Taylor - also known as Ddash - to all of the city's homicide victims.
He calls it "Roc City Obituary".
"I write songs for people who have been victims of homicide because music heals a lot of wounds," said Taylor.
He says he'll add this weekend's homicides to the list.
"For this year to actually surpass last year it's like we didn't get the lesson last year. More mother's crying and more kids are getting buried," said Taylor.
Taylor's mom started Roc the Peace, a Rochester non-violnece organization.
He is helping get more people involved including victim's families.
"I think it's going to take young black people because that is where the community is :06 young black people to step up, especially the families going through it," said Taylor
Taylor says a major problem is pride with people not walking away from situations.
He hopes lessons are learned from the statistics.
Because for him, it's a nightmare he can never wake up from.
"When they are gone, they are gone. There is no coming back, so the main thing is we got to stand up and live right," said Taylor.
