Two men shot on Navel Avenue porch

Two men in their 20s were shot on the porch of a house on Navel Avenue Wednesday afternoon, Buffalo Police said.

The victims were taken to Erie County Medical Center with injuries that were apparently not life-threatening, according to police.

The shooting occurred at about 1:10 p.m. in the first block of Navel Avenue, off of Bailey Avenue. Police said the two men, 21 and 28 years old, were outside on the porch when they were struck by gunfire. Neighbors said they heard about seven or eight gunshots.

The porch was covered in shards of glass as police officers marked bullet casings with yellow cones.

“This neighborhood is full of kids. Little ones,” said John Smith, who lives nearby on Littlefield Avenue. He was glad no children were hit in the double shooting.
