The Rochester, NY Police Department has confirmed that a man was shot by a stray bullet shot by one of their own early Wednesday morning.
That man has been identified as 34- year old Jamie Cruz of Rochester.
According to police, Cruz is the owner of a pitbull which they say attacked 33-ear old Maria Shaffer.
Shaffer is in critical condition at Strong Memorial Hospital.
The Rochester, NY Police Department released a statement saying Shaffer's arm had been amputated.
This is not true.
Rochester Police apologized for the false report.

The Rochester, NY Police Department waited hours before announcing that an innocent bystander was struck by a "projectile" after one of their officers shot and killed a pit bull they say was attacking a woman.
According to Rochester, NY Police Deputy Chief Scott Peters, his officers responded to a call for a woman being attacked by a pitbull on Rockview Terrace, on Rochester's west side, shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday morning.
That's when Peters says at least one RPD officer opened fire on the dog, killing it.
The woman, whose name has not been released underwent surgery at Strong Memorial Hospital where she is listed in critical condition.
But it wasn't until several hours later that Rochester Police disclosed that an innocent bystander was hit during the shooting.
That man was also taken to Strong Memorial Hospital where he is listed in guarded condition.
Now here's my thing.
I can understand Police having to shoot and kill an animal attacking a person.
But for a police department which has a long history of corruption, including cover-ups, it doesn't look too good to wait almost 5 hours to admit that an innocent bystander was hit by a "projectile".
Sounds like good ol' damage control to me.
Here's my question.
Did Rochester, NY Police also shoot the woman?
I will be updating this piece.
