Man charged in daytime fatal shooting

A 35-year-old Buffalo man was charged with second-degree murder in the daytime shooting death of 51-year-old Charles Wyatt of Buffalo, Acting District Attorney Michael Flaherty announced Monday.

Authorities identified the suspect as Marco Sweat.

Police believe that at about 8:45 a.m. Sept. 2, Sweat shot Wyatt on the street outside of 1400 E. Delavan Avenue. Wyatt was taken to Erie County Medical Center where he died of his injuries.

Sweat was arraigned Monday in Buffalo City Court where he pleaded not guilty. He is being held without bail and is scheduled to return to court at 9:30 a.m. Thursday before Judge James McLeod.

Wyatt was one of two people shot the morning of Sept. 2. Paul Held, 52, was fatally stabbed on Oakmont Avenue on Friday at about 8:15 a.m.

William Hemphill, 30, is in custody on second-degree murder charges in connection with the fatal stabbing of Held, police said.
