BUFFALO, NY (WIVB) - There have been two shootings in two weeks at New Foster’s Lounge in Buffalo.
The latest one took place around 3 a.m. Sunday morning at the corner of Jefferson and Davis. Two Buffalo men are now being treated at Erie County Medical Center. Police say 25-year-old Joseph McCrayer is listed in serious condition and 24-year-old Timothy Eatmon is in stable condition.
Neighbors spoke with News 4 and said nearly 30 shots were fired all over the area. They said bullets hit the lounge, nearby homes and at least two vehicles.
The second shooting took place on Saturday, October 26th around 3:45 in the morning. Police said the drive-by shooting left four people shot. One woman is still in the hospital recovering and listed in fair condition.
At this time police are not sure if the shootings are connected. However neighbors said they want them to stop.
“I just want my city back” said Sean Green of Buffalo.
Green said his family has lived across the street from the bar for years. He said a family member owns it, but it's currently leased it out.
“The bar was there before I was born. When I was old enough to go over to the bar we never had any problems” said Green.
Green and others agree things have gotten out of hand. They said violence shouldn't erupt outside your home. Neighbors said they want things to change.
“There are older people out here. People my age 40-years-old, down to people like 16, 15 years old. So just as a community we need to come together and stop the nonsense”.
So far Buffalo Police haven’t arrested any suspects in either case.
Anyone with information about these crimes is asked to call or text the Buffalo Police Department's confidential TIPCALL Line at (716) 847-2255 or e-mail the department at www.bpdny.org.
