Boy, 15, stable after being shot on Jewett Avenue

A 15-year-old boy was struck by gunfire about 4:30 p.m. Sunday in the 200 block of Jewett Avenue on the city’s East Side, Buffalo police said.

The boy was taken to Erie County Medical Center where he underwent surgery and was in stable condition, according to Buffalo police spokesman Michael J. DeGeorge.

That block of Jewett was the scene Tuesday night of a fatal shooting. Darren L. Rice, 20, of Niagara Falls, died after he was shot multiple times, police said.
