Officials mum on circumstances of May 7 fatal shooting in Buffalo

A 29-year-old man was fatally shot four months ago on Holt Street, but Buffalo police aren't saying much about what happened.

Police say the victim, Thomas Mayfield, was shot May 7 by a resident on Holt Street. The shooter, who police declined to identify, is fully cooperating with authorities and no charges have been filed at this point, according to the department.

Buffalo police do not list Mayfield on the department's tally of homicides in 2017.

Police said the case is still under investigation and also is being reviewed by the Erie County District Attorney's Office.

Joanna Pasceri, a spokeswoman for the district attorney's office, confirmed there's an investigation but declined further comment.
