A Buffalo man who drove the getaway vehicle in a fatal 2016 shooting at the Anchor Bar was convicted Friday by a jury of second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon, according to the Erie County District Attorney's Office.
On May 20, 2016, Gregory Ramos, 27, and the shooter, Jorge Suarez, 27, also of Buffalo, drove to the Anchor Bar on Main Street. Suarez entered the back of the restaurant and fatally shot Freddie Dizon, 32, of Buffalo. Ramos drove Suarez to and from the restaurant.
Suarez was convicted of second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon in December, and was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.
Ramos, who also goes by the street name "Prospect," faces 25 years to life in prison when he is sentenced July 17 by State Supreme Court Justice Christopher J. Burns.
