Gun found Thursday at Shea’s belonged to off-duty officer

A gun found Thursday night at a performance of “Sesame Street Live” at Shea’s Performing Arts Center belonged to an off-duty Buffalo police officer, city officials said.

Michael DeGeorge, a spokesman for Mayor Byron W. Brown, said the gun was immediately located by another law enforcement official who also was attending the performance and taken to security.

Buffalo police have opened up an internal investigation into the matter, he said.
