A 22-year-old Buffalo man who was shot multiple times in the head outside a pizzeria on Niagara Street has died of his injuries, Buffalo police said Wednesday.
Just before 9 p.m. Dec. 14, the man had just left the pizzeria at 859 Niagara St., between Vermont and Rhode Island streets, when he "engaged in a verbal argument" with another person who opened fire several times, a police report about the incident said.
The victim was initially driven in a private vehicle to Sisters Hospital and he was later transported by ambulance to ECMC, police said.
Police have not released his name.
Police asked anyone with information about the shooting to call or text the Buffalo Police Department confidential TIPCALL line at 716-847-2255.
