Falls alley encounter ends with man being shot in the foot

NIAGARA FALLS – A confrontation in an alley between 12th and 13th streets early Saturday ended with a man being shot in the foot with a long gun, police said.

The victim, identified as Micah Watson, was found bleeding heavily inside a 13th Street home shortly before 2 a.m., according to reports. He told police he had been walking in the alley when he was confronted by three men – one saying, ”You think you’re tough? Hold this,” before being shot in the right foot. Police said the victim made his way to the nearby home of an acquaintance who summoned police.

Watson, no age available, with addresses in Buffalo and Niagara Falls, was listed in good condition in Erie County Medical Center, Buffalo.
