A 29-year-old man remained in critical condition today after he was shot several times Wednesday afternoon in front of his High Street house, authorities said.
Central District police arrested two suspects within minutes after Bobby Jeter was critically wounded, according to Capt. Joseph Riga, chief of the Homicide Bureau.
Jeter was taken to Buffalo General Hospital with multiple gunshot wounds, including at least two to the chest, Riga said.
The shooting occurred at about 4:45 p.m., after a car driven by a woman pulled up in front of the house and a man got out of the car and began firing, Riga said. They both then fled in the car.
Within minutes, Central District officers pulled the car over on East Delavan Avenue, on the Kensington Expressway overpass.
Officers Mark Locicero, Thomas O'Brien, Kenneth Devlin and George Morlock took the suspects into custody without incident, the captain said.
Charged with attempted murder and first-degree assault were Derrick Storey, 24, and Tiffany Goree, 37, both of Longview Street. Storey also was charged with criminal possession of a weapon.
A small-caliber handgun was used in the shooting, said Riga, who declined to comment on whether it was recovered.
The motive is under investigation.
