Four Buffalo men get prison terms for robbery and shoot-out in Jamestown

MAYVILLE – Four Buffalo men were given state prison terms by Chautauqua County Judge John T. Ward for a shoot out with Jamestown police last summer, District Attorney David W. Foley and Kathleen D. Krauza, chief clerk of the Chautauqua County Courts, said Thursday.

Jacon Hicks, 26, the alleged mastermind of the early morning incident and shoot out with Jamestown police on Falconer Street last July 1, was ordered to serve a five-year prison term as a repeat felon on his burglary conviction. Jaqwan Martin, 23, was ordered to serve a four-year prison term on his burglary conviction. Martin’s twin brother Maqwan Martin, also 23, was ordered to serve a prison term of two to four years and Levelle Jones, 26, was sentenced to a four-year prison term on his burglary conviction in the case.

The four were arrested for an incident that began about 3 a.m. last July 1 when Jamestown police were called to Falconer Street after receiving reports of a fight on that street. The suspects traded gunfire with officers for a time. All four had been indicted on robbery, burglary, sex abuse, weapons and felony assault charges for a violent Falconer Street home invasion that morning.
