Victim vehicle

Police are looking for this type of vehicle, a 2007 Acura TSX, which belonged to the victim in last week’s shooting on Route 96 in Phelps. This is not the actual vehicle.

PHELPS — The man who was found dead along Route 96 last week had moved to Rochester from Cleveland, Ohio.

Ontario County Sheriff Kevin Henderson released that information Monday in a media update on the investigation into the shooting death of Jean Carlos-Rentas, 28. His body was found near Hayes Road.

Police now believe Carlos-Rentas was killed about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday. His body was seen by a passing motorist about two hours later.

Henderson is asking anyone who has a video camera along the Route 96 corridor, from Route 14 in Phelps to I-490 in Victor, to look at video for the victim’s vehicle or any suspicious activity. He said police are looking for the time frame between 8 p.m. and midnight.

Police are still looking for the victim’s vehicle, a 2007 four-door Acura TSX with New York license plate JGF4990. The vehicle identification number is JH4CL9637C006008.

Anyone who may know where the vehicle is or have information on the case is urged to call the sheriff’s office direct tip hotline at (585) 296-4152.

On Monday, Henderson reiterated his belief that the shooting death is an isolated incident and there is no present danger to the public.
