MAN LINKED TO TWO SHOOTING INCIDENTS GETS 5 YEARS

A self-professed non-violent Buffalo man linked to two city shooting incidents was sent to prison for five years Friday by a skeptical judge.

After Terrance D. Duncan told State Supreme Court Justice Russell P. Buscaglia he was only "target shooting" on Broadway in April 1997 and only left court during his jury trial two months ago because he thought he had permission to leave, the judge called him a liar.

Jailed since his lawyer brought him back to court June 24, Duncan, 30, of Broadway, told the judge he had been arrested on Broadway on April 15, 1997, while he was staging "just a demonstration of target practice," firing at a car.

Buscaglia who agreed to a prosecutor plea deal on a felony weapons charge to wrap up Duncan's two cases, told him the only reason he wasn't getting a longer prison term was because his lawyer, Alan D. Goldstein, got him back to court before an arrest warrant could be issued.
