Second suspect arrested in attack on elderly Buffalo man

A 19-year-old Buffalo man was arrested Thursday as the second of the three suspects linked to the Nov. 24 attack on Levi Clayton, the 96-year-old Buffalo church deacon who died Wednesday in Buffalo Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

Jordon McKinnon, no address listed, was arraigned in Buffalo City Court on felony robbery and burglary charges in connection with the home invasion at the victim’s Longview Avenue home.

Justice Feggans, 18, a former Riverside High School basketball star, was the first suspect arrested.

Police still were looking for the third suspect shown on the home surveillance system that had been set up at the elderly victim’s home.

If the Erie County Medical Examiner’s office makes a determination that Clayton’s death was the result of the facial fractures he suffered in the November attack, homicide or manslaughter-related charges could be placed against his attackers. Clayton was an active deacon at Buffalo’s Friendship Baptist Church.
