Buffalo Police seize gun, arrest 2 near scene of fatal shootout

Buffalo Police seized a gun and several boxes of ammunition and took two men into custody during a raid late Tuesday morning at 44 Hartman Place, close to where a Buffalo police officer was wounded and a suspect was killed in a shootout Sunday.

Buffalo Police said on social media there was no connection between the raid and the shootings Sunday, which started with a traffic stop at Garfield Street and Hartman Place.

Police have been searching for the suspect's gun since late Sunday afternoon, when Jose Hernandez-Rossy was shot dead and Officer Joseph Acquino was shot in the ear.

The scene of the raid was half a block away from where the suspect in the Sunday incident crashed his car through hedges and into the side of a house, and began struggling with officers.
