Buffalo resident Christopher Boyd was sentenced to 35 years in prison for shooting the owner of Zoe Restaurant and other crimes, the Erie Country District Attorney's Office said Thursday.
Boyd, 37, was also sentenced by Erie County Court Judge Sheila A. DiTullio to 10 years of post-release supervision.
Boyd pleaded guilty to attempted murder in connection with the Sept. 4, 2016, shooting of Alexander J. Pozantidis during a robbery at Zoe Restaurant on Transit Road in Clarence. Pozantidis was struck in the arm and chest.
