UB student killed in double homicide in Monroe County

A University at Buffalo student was one of the victims in what the Monroe County Sheriff's Office described as a double homicide Sunday night in the hamlet of Hamlin.

Alexander Burrow, 20, of Clarkson, was beginning his second year at UB, his brother, Shane Cease of Sweden, N.Y., told the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle.

The bodies of Burrow and Bruce Kane, 19, of Sweden, were discovered in a burned-out car behind a warehouse on King Street about 11 a.m. Monday, deputies said.

Monroe County Sheriff Todd Baxter told reporters Wednesday that both men suffered gunshot wounds. Investigators believe the deaths took place between 11:30 p.m. Sunday and 1:30 a.m. Monday.

Burrow and Kane were graduates of Brockport High School and members of the swim team. Burrow graduated in 2016 and Kane graduated last June.
