It's a place where everybody knows your name.
"This is a quiet town, this is a quiet area," said Nelson Mateo, a Geneva resident.
A quiet area that's been rocked by two shootings in one month.
"We had a shooting at Al's Inn, a bar located on Exchange Street in the City of Geneva," said Frank Pane, the Police Chief of the Geneva Police Department.
Pane says 17-year-old Alexis Rivera shot Jason Turner early Sunday morning. Three weeks before that, police arrested 19-year-old Tremaine Green for the shooting death of 17-year-old Elvin Manuel Cruz.
"I'm real angry plus I'm a little scared because it's my family you know," said Richard White, a Geneva resident and uncle of Jason Turner.
White is happy to report his nephew is in stable condition. But now, White questions the safety of Geneva since violence hit home.
"I don't know what to do I want to pack up and leave," said White.
According to Geneva Police, violent crimes like these are uncommon. There were 2 murders in 2004, 1 in 2005, none last year and 1 this year so far.
"The big thing is to put police officers on the street and their presence is noted by someone who might have an idea of committing violence in our city," said Pane.
But some residents aren't convinced more police presence is the answer.
"There's a lot of hate going on right now," said Mateo.
With five children, Mateo says Geneva has changed a lot since he was a kid.
"It's teenagers, all this hanging out, you've got guys, kids hanging out in bars. I've been around here, I've seen kids in these bars," said Mateo.
Prompting some residents including White to applaud the idea of a youth curfew, similar to the one in Rochester. But when and if that will happen, White's opinion about the City he's lived in all his life has forever changed.
"I don't feel safe at all, you never know what could happen," said White.
Police are looking into whether the two shootings are connected and whether they were gang-related. They also plan to work with school officials to curb violent crime.
