Shots fired at East Side home

A home near East Delavan and Bailey avenues was riddled with bullet holes on Sunday afternoon, with the shots believed to have come from a neighboring home.

An Ericson Avenue man told Buffalo Police that he heard several “pops” and noticed bullet holes in drywall, siding, windows and gutters of his home between about 2 and 5 p.m. Sunday.

Based on the trajectory of the holes, officers entered a neighboring home and found a loaded .22-caliber rifle, according to a police report.

A juvenile was the only person in the home from which the shots were fired, the report said.

Damage was estimated at $1,500.
