BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A 15-year-old Buffalo high school student was shot to death in broad daylight Friday afternoon.
It was about 1:10 Friday afternoon when the 15-year-old boy who was standing near a bus shelter at West Delavan and Grant Street was shot in the back. He managed to run across Grant Street and then collapsed.
This actually happened within sight of where 24-year-old John Rockmore was gunned down a year ago this week. Police are still investigating Friday's shooting and there is a camera at this corner that we believe is operated by Grant Street businesses. They were among the first in the city to put up street cameras years ago.
Chief Dennis Richards of the Buffalo Police siad, "As always, we're looking for any information from the public, any footage from any building or city camera in the area will be analyzed and looked at, and if there's any further information to put it out as far as who a suspect might be."
A witness who heard the shots said, "If nobody do it, I will do it myself, call Mayor Brown, say, "Dude, I need to talk to you," 'cause this don't make no sense. Kids getting killed left and right, and to me it seems like all the younger people are leaving instead of older people, and it just seems like, right now, this is gonna have to finally end. Make it stop, now."
