A 23-year-old man was fatally shot and left in a field off Ashley and Quincy streets in Buffalo Saturday morning, according to Michael J. DeGeorge, a spokesman for the Buffalo Police Department.
A passerby called police after spotting the body in the field just before 8 a.m. Saturday, the spokesman said.
Detectives began working on the investigation after an autopsy at the Erie County Medical Examiner's office determined the cause of death was a gunshot wound, according to DeGeorge.
No further information was released.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call or text the Buffalo Police Confidential TIP-CALL Line at 716-847-2256.
