BUFFALO MAN INJURED IN DRIVE-BY SHOOTING

A 20-year-old Buffalo man was shot in the thigh early Monday as he walked along Sumner Place, near Walden Avenue, police said.

Kenny Deas, of Sumner Place, was being treated in the emergency room of Erie County Medical Center.

Ferry-Fillmore District police said that just before 2 a.m., a dark-colored vehicle with tinted windows pulled up beside Deas. Two men in the vehicle began shooting at him and the victim ran home where his mother drove him to the hospital. Officers recovered a .25-caliber round at the scene.
