Four wounded in shooting near Hertel and Niagara

Four people were wounded by gunfire at approximately 9:15 p.m. Sunday in the 2000 block of Niagara Street, near Hertel Avenue in Buffalo’s Black Rock neighborhood, according to the Buffalo Police Department.

Buffalo Police spokesman Michael DeGeorge said the shooting was in connection with a dispute.

"We're still investigating it," Buffalo Police Commissioner Byron C. Lockwood said Monday morning at an unrelated news conference. "Right now we don't know what led up to this. We know there was an argument, and from there it was shots fired."

DeGeorge said Monday morning that two males, a 33-year-old and a 28-year-old, were in stable condition at Erie County Medical Center, and that two females, a 24-year-old and a 26-year-old, had been treated and released.

One of the men had been in critical condition late Sunday night, according to DeGeorge.

Buffalo Detective Sergeant Carl Lundin said that the victims will be cooperating with police following their medical treatment.

Media reports indicated that the incident occurred outside Poize Restaurant and Lounge at 2081 Niagara. The Poize Facebook page said that the club hosted a Day Party that ended at 9 p.m.

Buffalo Police asked anyone with information to call their confidential tip line at 847-2255.
