Bullets pepper Buffalo hookah lounge; rebuffed juveniles suspected

A hookah lounge on the city’s West Side was sprayed by bullets early Saturday morning.

Six or seven shots were fired at the Almultaga Hookah Lounge, 901 Niagara St., about 1:30 a.m. Saturday, Buffalo police said. Just prior to that, the establishment refused to allow a group of juveniles into the lounge.

Five shell casings were recovered at the scene.

One 17-year-old was charged for trespassing in connection with the case.
