Series of Buffalo shootings leaves one person dead, five wounded

It has been a violent few days on Buffalo’s streets.

Buffalo police are investigating two shootings Saturday night that wounded a 25-year-old Cheektowaga man and a 19-year-old Buffalo man.

The Cheektowaga man was hit by gunfire just before 9:15 p.m. near East Ferry and Carl streets, just east of Grider Street. He was taken to Erie County Medical Center, where he was treated and discharged.

Separately, just before midnight, the Buffalo man was taken to ECMC in a private vehicle after suffering a gunshot wound. He was taken immediately into surgery and later was listed in critical condition.

Police responded to ECMC to start the investigation of that incident, which happened in the 100 block of East End Avenue.

Additionally, another person was shot Sunday morning at East Ferry and Ernst Avenue and taken to ECMC for treatment.

And early Friday, just after midnight, a person was shot at 64 Barthel St. and then taken to ECMC for treatment, while another gunshot victim went to ECMC at about 9:15 p.m. Friday. That victim said the shooting occurred near Ashley and Quincy streets, but police could not find a crime scene.

In addition, officers responding to a rescue call at 1:02 p.m. Friday found a dead victim at 185 Fourth St.

Officials are asking anyone with information about the shootings to call or text the confidential TIP-CALL line at 847-2255.
