BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz says a local 911 dispatcher has been put on administrative leave for her handling of a call about the mass shooting at the Tops store on Jefferson Avenue.
Poloncarz says what happened regarding the call was “inappropriate” and “unacceptable.” According to him, the call came from someone who was inside the store during the shooting that killed 10 people and injured three others.
