A Herman Street man was taken to Erie County Medical Center with an abdominal wound after a fusillade of shots was fired from a car on Sherman Street at about 8 p.m. Thursday, Buffalo police said.
Several homes were also hit.
Officers said they found Phillip Perdue, 19, on the porch of an abandoned house on Sherman Street, which they said is used for illegal drug activity. He is expected to recover. Witnesses said Perdue was standing near the corner of Sherman and Genesee streets with a group of young men who fled.
Witnesses told police that as many as a dozen shots were fired, several of them striking homes on the street. No one else was injured. Police said they found various bullet casings on the pavement, indicating that several guns were used.
